Jeff's parents, Don and Jajuan, recently had this sign put up out near the intersection where Jeff was killed two years ago by an intoxicated driver(and where Kim and Sigmund and two other people were seriously hurt).
I really do hope that everyone has a good, safe holiday weekend, but please, please, please don't drive if you include drinking as part of your festivities this weekend. Just get a ride or call a cab or find a place to sleep wherever you're celebrating, but don't get behind the wheel if you've been drinking. And although it's even harder to do, keep in mind that other drivers may have been drinking, and be extra cautious on the roads over the holiday weekend.
Let's all just take care of each other and watch out for each other, and I wholeheartedly promise that it'll be possible to still have a really good time, but be safe while we're doing it. Jeff was one of the most fun-loving people that I know, and he loved a good party more than anyone, but he was also one of the most careful people that I knew when it came to drinking and driving. Anyway, he would want us all to have a good time, but at the same time, he would want us to be safe and not put each other at risk.
I miss you every day, Jeff.
