    It is October 19, 2020, and I just now learned a great childhood friend of mine has taken the last long sleep. Jeff and I had some good times growing up in Bethlehem. I will never forget the “band” Jeff, John Juluan, and I, put together for our 8th grade talent show. John and I played guitar and Jeff played drums. We played many games of touch football in his front yard back then with Donny Goss, Paul Sams, and his little brother, Norman. I met Jeff when I was in the second grade and continued our friendship again when we got to the 6th grade. I have not seen or spoken to Jeff in several years, but I did try to find a way to contact him, which is how I found out about his passing. He will be missed.
