    I’m sorry for your loss. I remember being friends with Jeff as a youth in the boys program at church. Sounds like he never changed inside.

    I have been with Jeff’s mom for going on twenty years. So I became Jeff’s stepfather, there wasn’t anything that this awsome lad wouldnt do for me. Jeff was the type to show up do those special things, and you would find out later that he had been there. Our many chats will become my most precious memories. Jeff’s very last words he texted , was I love you Eddie Mom and I will forever keep you in our hearts. We know you are with your dad and waiting for us, so soar with the angels till we meet again. We love you so much. Mom and Eddie

I was blessed to have JEFF (shakey) MARTZ in my life. He had a lot of good qualitys and would do anything for you. I could go on and on. I will miss you my friend. RIP
