Dearest Lisa, On behalf of my wife Gaiskale, my daughters Alejandra and Kalena, and myself, we would like to send you our love and support during this time. As I could read from his obituary, Jeff was an outstanding guy and he was very lucky to have you and Nathan to fight the good fight alongside him. We are very saddened for your loss but are grateful that he is now in a much better place without suffering or pain. We wish you the best going forward and my wish is also for Nathan to be able to follow Jeff’s steps becoming as great as his father was and that he maintain Jeff’s memory alive by living everyday following his teachings with you as his Mom and support. Jeff can only be physically gone but never how he lived and the memories you all shared. Allow yourself to grief and take all the time you need to heal and energize again. Remember, you’re not alone your TC• Family has your back. Sending hugs, love and lots of prayers for you and your family. Jesús, Gaiskale, Alejandra and Kalena. Guatemala, LATAM September 14, 2021

Lisa and Nathan, Jeff will be truly missed by all the people that were lucky enough to know him and I can only imagine without any doubt this will be the hardest for his immediate family. While this loss is hard, I am relieved that his fight is finally over and he is at peace. I have such respect for him and he loved his family which was evident in so many of the actions he took. Please know you have a support system around you and I am here to help in anyway I can. Lisa, please remember totake your time over the next several months,. There is no rush and reach out if you need help with anything. You and Nathan deserve all the time you need. Warmly, Greg
