    Bob and Nancy,

    I’m truly sorry for your loss. I’ve followed Jeff’s journey since joining this forum, and have always been inspired by his bravery and spirit. From your posts, it’s not hard to see you’ve also been incredible parents.

    Many hugs.



    Bob and Nancy –
    So sorry for the loss of Jeff. I am sure that his time on this earth was made even more wonderful by having such loving parents. We should all be so blessed.



    I am so sorry to read your sad news about jeff, my god bless you both, Pat


    Bob and Nancy – Words can not express the loss you and your family must be feeling for Jeff. You are all in my prayers today. Nancy, I believe your husband shared with you that Mark and I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Jeff and your husband during a routine visit to USC. I can’t even begin to tell you how that was one of the most amazing moments of my life. Jeff had the most beautiful smile and was so cheerful. His spirit touched me and I will never forget that feeling. We were certainly blessed to spend a few moments with him. He will hold a special place in my heart especially as a mother of an autistic son.

    Many Blessings, Jeannemarie Parsons


    Dear Bob and Nancy,

    We were deeply saddened to hear of Jeff’s passing. As someone who is fighting this disease myself, I was inspired by his faith and positive spirit. That was especially evident in person. A high point in my journey was when Dr. Lenz brought us together at USC. What an honor to meet you both and shake Jeff’s hand (I now know it should have been a fist bump).

    Reading the posts on the obituary website, it was remarkable to see the dozens of posts from his coworkers at Mattel. He obviously was loved by all who knew him. You raised a wonderful son who was such a positive influence in the world.

    We know that Jeff is surrounded by God’s light, and we will continue to hold you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Mark and Jeannemarie


    Dear Bob and Nancy,

    I am truly sorry to read that your brave and remarkable son Jeff has died. Your posting back in December was the first one I read when I joined this incredible forum. He was blessed to have had you both as his parents.

    Dear Bob and Nancy,

    I’m so very sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing. I’ve followed all of your postings about him and his fight and I am sorry to hear this news. He was so brave and courageous and I am glad that he was surrounded by his family and friends at the end. I know that you will miss him so much and I am very glad that you have made these memories to treasure for ever. My thoughts are with you both and your family right now.




    Bob & Nancy,

    So sorry for your loss. Keeping you in my thoughts & prayers at this sad & trying time.

    Love & hugs,


    Bob and Nancy,

    I have been following your posts about your loving son Jeff and am so very sad to read this latest post about his passing. What a wonderful son to two very wonderful parents. Your posts were always so filled with hope and love. I am glad to hear that you got to spend some special time with Jeff and that he was able to be so functioning until the end.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers and I will be thinking of you tomorrow. We were very lucky to be able to know all of you through your posts.



    Dear Bob and Nancy,

    I am so sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing. He seemed like such a wonderful son and you were such loving, kind parents to him. I will be thinking of you tomorrow as you attend Jeff’s services. Bless you both as you face difficult times in the coming weeks and months. I know my Lauren was at heaven’s gate waiting to welcome your precious Jeff. Take care.

    Love and hugs,


    Dear Bob & Nancy,

    I am so sorry for your loss. It sounds like you are remarkable parents. As they say, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” and that seems evident in the way Jeff lived his life. He learned from the best.

    Please know that I am thinking of you during this difficult time and will keep you in my prayers.

    Jeff is now in the arms of The Lord. God Bless Jeff!



    Please accept my sincere condolences. Jeff sounds like a remarkable young man. How fortunate you all were to have each other for as long as you did! Be kind to yourselves.

    He was blessed!

    What a beautiful tribute to Jeff. He was very lucky to have such wonderful and caring parents. May Jeff rest in peace and may GOD bless your family at this difficult time.


    Dear Nancy and Bob, you have joined the amazing best parents club as you were parents to an awesome angel. I guess God needed Jeff more than we did on earth and we know he only picks the very best. I wish there was a way to bottle Jeff’s attitude, hope and dignity to give some to all. I could say how sad this makes me but then Jeff would not have liked that. Concentrate on your best memories and know that he is now an extremely healthy Jeff and he will always be looking over you.

    Do not stand at my grave and weep;
    I am not there. I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn’s rain,
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there. I did not die. By Mary Elizabeth Frye
    For everything beautiful that you see
    will bring a memory of me.
