I will always remember your camelbacks Jere. I'm sure David is glad to have you back so he can enjoy your delicious cooking...and God says...now...that's what heaven tastes like! :) You were always so kind to me. I know you are both looking down on Jeff and so proud of him for chasing his dream to help animals. I will always have a special place in my heart for Jeff and his family. After all he was my first love. You will be missed Jere. ~Amy
