Linda- I am so sorry to hear of Jeff\'s passing. My memories will always reflect his days with the Cutchogue Lions including the Car Show and our summer/winter outings at the Pequash Club, the Fire Department and the reason I am still with East End Insurance. He will be missed by our community. If there is anything I can do for you, let me know.\r\n\r\nWayne
