Jeff you were like my brother. Every day that passes I miss you more and more every day. We talked all the time about our shows life and just in general. I haven’t yet visited your grave it’s hard to see you resting in such a cold place especially since I knew how much you loved life and seeing your son growing up. I looked at your God son today and it over whelmed me that you will never see him or Wesley graduate or go to the prom. You were my friend and the kindest person I know. I never have to regret me telling you I love you because I did. I never have to regret me not being there because I was . The only thing I regret is that you’re not here and I truly miss u!!!!

, ,

My sincere sympathy to Richard, Peggy, and Janet and the rest of Jeff’s family and friends. I enjoyed watching him grow up! And, man, did he! Always a smile on his face and so well mannered and polite. A great loss to many of us. RIP.

Connie Miller, Brandon, MS

Jeff to myself you were my best friend, my moral compass you were a constant reminder of what was good in the world, beyond myself you were an incredible father, a beloved and generous person to family, friends and all others that encountered you. My life is better for knowing you and I can’t imagine these coming days without you in my life. You will not only be missed but always remembered. Rest In Peace my friend, you were loved by so many. Love Keith

Keith Berger, Savannah, GA

The price to pay for having someone special touch your life is the sadness you feel when they're gone... It always seems like we have all the time in the world, only to realize how fleeting it really is. I wish we had more time to do and say the things we saved for later which along with you is gone forever. You have left a void no one can fill Embry... They are not many in the world like you. I keep you alive in my memories, in my heart, where we can be as one. Rest in peace my dear ??

Natalya, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

Brittany Anderson, Madison Ms,

Even though we never met, I know my dearest friend and sister, Tobisha, found the love of her life in you. You made her happy and for that, I will always be grateful. May you Rest In Peace, knowing that Tobisha, Milana and Wesley, will be loved by all near and dear.

So very sorry for your loss...

Milners' Russ family, Charlotte, NC

My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends Jeff. As you rest, there are many grieving. A true sign of the great person you were. I remember you as a young teenager, sharing good times and bad with my son, Charlie Johnson. Especially the laughs I had about you two trying to share a room at Mississippi State. Through it all you remained close. You were a sweet and kind person inside and out. You will be missed for a very long time. Rest in peace Jeff.

Jackie Cobb, Paris, TN

Jeff, I can't express my feelings and thoughts as well as our brother Francois, but I hope you know how much I cherished our friendship of 40+ years and how much you will be missed by so many people whose lives you touched. You were such a great man, father, friend and brother. Love you always Bro.

Charlie Johnson, Honolulu, HI

Dear Jeff, dear Best Friend, 1987. Vicksburg, MS. The start of a TRUE and NEVER-ENDING friendship. You were always there, with your vision, your goals, your laugh, your jokes and your ability to listen and understand your friend from Belgium. You never judged me and always accepted my weaknesses and failures. Your Mother, that I loved, was exactly like you: a wonderful and dedicated person (I loved her cooking by the way!). We were close, even with an ocean between us and even with months (or years) passing by. When together we discovered with Charlie the happy corners of life, wherever we could find them : Gulf Shores (and Flora Bama !) in the summer, “across the bridge’ (in Vicksburg), Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach, West Palm Beach, Orlando and, of course, Savannah where you had the most wonderful gift of all : Wesley! One summer, after I had stayed a couple of months in MS and we had gone out quite a while in the region, I returned to Europe and you told me that people were asking you “where is your Brother?”. Yes. We were close. Best friends. Forever. 2019. You decided to leave us. Suddenly. With no warning. Wesley is now here. Without you. One day, when appropriate, I will tell Wesley how much you mean to me and how you help me be a better person. A true inspiration. Best friends. Forever. Francois

Francois Beghin, Brussels BELGIUM,

My heart goes out to Jeff's family and son Wesley. I know I speak for all the "Boat Boy's" from Myrtle Beach to Savannah when I say that Jeff was a great person and a great friend. We love you and will miss you!!

Corey Mitchell, Springfield, Ga

I am so sorry for your sad loss. When I think of Jeff, I always think of Billy and "his boys" in Gulf Shores. I'm so glad Billy kept every picture from every trip. Those pictures always make me smile. My prayers will be with all of you.
