Please know that all of you are in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. No words can ever take away the hurt or pain you are all feeling right now. We wish we were closer to all of you to extend our sympathy in person. Jeff is in a much better place now and he will no longer feel the pain and suffering that he felt here on earth. So the next time you see lightning--throw a kiss toward the sky--to Jeff. He will just be helping out in the "electrical" end of God’s great palace.

Dear Dale, Kaye, and Family,
I am completely lost for words. It has been a long time since I have seen any of you. I only wish I have could have seen Jeff one last time. Jeff was my older brother. He had a big influence on me growing up. There are so many memories of all of us in our younger days and I will never forget them. I will carry them with me for the rest of my time. Just know he is now in a better place, and with Jason. I am sorry I cannot be there in this difficult time. My thoughts are with you. Dale, Kaye, stay strong. We love you!

A few days have passed since the funeral and I wanted to express to you the greatness of admiration I feel for you. The strength you had and I’m sure still have was incredible. Brennan will be your shining light. He is so adorable. Thank you for allowing us to be with you at such a difficult time. Jeffery Dale is forever in our hearts...

Steve and Gayle Sutter
Dale, Kay, Danielle, Russell, Marcus, Keyanna, Becky and Brennan,
You are in our thoughts, our prayers and our hearts. A few months ago we lost someone also and this quote was quite helpful - we hope it can help you
"When you come to the edge of all the light you know,
and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown,
faith is knowing one of two things will happen:
There will be something solid to stand on,
or you will be taught how to fly."

God bless you and give you strength, you have our sympathy and love - Jeff and Jason will always be in our hearts

Steve, Gayle, Matt, Samantha, and Luke Sutter

Eric Schennum
My condolences to Jeff’s family, wife, and son. Jeff and I were classmates at USF and helped each other get through the tough times. I will remember you all and Jeff in my prayers. I have not kept in touch and now am really sad that I did not. I too work at Honeywell but in Sarasota and I see now he did too at Honeywell Space Systems. I just noticed his name in an email distribution list from 2002 when he was with FiberSpans, mail was returned, and so I made a Google Search and pow. I can’t believe it. I am so sorry!

Michael Aschi and Family
Our deepest sympathy to Danielle, Brennan, and Jeff’s entire family. We are very saddend by the news and everyone is in our prayers.
