  2. I will miss Mrs Jeffrey, she was like a second mother to me while growing up on our little U-turn neighborhood in Pasadena. Larry was my best friend and we lived next door to one another into my teens, so she watched over me pretty close. Spent a lot of time with the Jeffrey’s at home and at “the cabin”, huntin’, fishin’ and just messin’ around. She always took care of us, no matter what silliness we got into, but I literally never remember seeing her upset or angry.

    She was always such a classy lady, kept the house and herself up like they we’re millionaires. Obviously they were not, nor was anyone in our neighborhood, but Mrs Jeffrey was first class all the way. Lester was a lucky man, Larry, Diane, Brenda and Jeff were so fortunate to have a mother like Mrs Jeffrey. She was the kind of wife and Mom that you would only see on some fake sitcom, “Ozzie and Harriet”, “Leave it Beaver” Mrs Cleaver or “Happy Days” Mrs C, the kind of Mom every kid wanted.

    Good bye Mrs Jeffrey, we’ll miss you, but see you again, some day soon, Scott
