Oh man...Jeff helped me find the Steel Guitar Forum...I had no idea he was even ill, as he stopped replying to any emails/calls? Godspeed Jeff! He really was an outstanding player and musician!

I remember well seeing Jeff playing in local bands around the Wichita area years ago. I always admired his playing, and he was one of my inspirations when I first started playing in the early 80s. RIP Jeff.
