Jeff Beck-We Love You

We recently lost a man that
was very dear to our family

When he met my mother he told her
he had prayed for her.
A strong red headed woman.
They fell in love instantly.

Children flocked to him.
Always climbing him like a tree.

From the time Kylie was a toddler up until this past winter ,
she would rub his "smooth" head and giggle.

He never met a person who didn't love his smile.
His laugh was was hearty and contagious.

He had so much love for his family and would do anything 
to support them, including
driving many hours and thousands of miles daily in his big rig.
He immediately opened his heart to my brother.
As William grew older he was not just 
his wife's son but his true friend and biggest supporter.
I know his heart is heavy but
all of the encouraging words will be with William for
the rest of his life.

Jeff loved his daughter Jaelyn with all of his heart.
They had a very close and special bond.
They spoke often and he loved their one-on-one time.

At 6 ft 3 he stood taller than us all, he could have hugged our
whole family at once.

He was always a generous and cheerful giver.
Always wanting to do more for others.
Everyone who knew him felt that fruit.

We are all so thankful to have gotten to spend time with them
last summer. Jeff fried the fresh caught fish and everyone
agreed it was some of the best!

These men. Jeff, Derek, Will and William, they are family.
They are friends. I loved seeing them talking and laughing.
Time would escape them. 
They live miles apart but when together it was if
they never missed a beat.

His most recent visit with his daughter will 
forever be in her heart. Not only as the last time she saw her father, 
but also because his love for Christ expanded to his daughter
 and She accepted Jesus as her Savior.
His heart swelled with pride and he excitedly told everyone.
We are praying that she will continue 
to seek God and that she will find comfort in him.
Any time that you think of Jeff-say a prayer 
for Jaelyn. For her present pain and for her future.

For the last 3 years Jeff has supported my mother
while she has been in full time ministry school.
He always believed in their ministry and
spoke highly of her any chance he got.
He was very proud of her hard work and determination.

I am so saddened that my mother has to go through this.
Lose this good man, her love.
She is seeking the Lord for strength.
Please pray for her.
For healing, for guidance, for

The pain my heart feels for the loss of Jeff is tremendous.
I'm devastated that at the young age of 43
we have lost such a great man.
Our family will just not be the same without him.
He will be missed by so many.
We are all grateful to have shared life with him and
will cherish the memories in our hearts
for a life time.

Exodus 19:13b
When the ram's horn sounds a long blast, they shall come up to the mountain.

1 Corinthians 15:51-52
51 Look, I will tell you a secret — not all of us will die! But we will all be changed! 52 It will take but a moment, the blink of an eye, at the final shofar. For the shofar will sound, and the dead will be raised to live forever, and we too will be changed.

We will see you in heaven Jeff.
