I'm sorry if this guy stole things from you. That is NO reason to bad mouth him on this forum now. Since he has passed, all you are doing with your hateful post is hurting his family. They are the ones here and they are the ones in pain. Your children while upset will recover from the loss, his family will forever feel the pain of his loss. I do not know him or his family, but I DO KNOW what it feels like to have things stolen from you. Our house was broken into and we had a lot stolen from us. I have a 7 year old. She knew someone stole the things from us and broke into our home. We explained that people do bad things but they still could be ok people and then we prayed for whoever did it and hoped someday that something would change their heart. You need to teach your kids to forgive and move on, not to bad mouth someone who just passed away, knowing their family are reading your words. If you can't get passed it, then have compassion for this guys family.

Amen to truthsayer, how can anyone ask forgiveness unless they themselves are ready to forgive, addiction is very powerfull, and we've been warned through scripture that the devil knows our weekness, he doesn't want anyone to enter the kingdom, cause he's not allowed there, so we struggle through this life of temptation, some weaker than others, but all looking for the same thing, peace love and respect, try to lead by example and show a little of each of these in your daily life, it's what we all long for, I do not personally know Jeff but may he rest in peace, and may God have mercy on his soul.
