Dear Family, I am sending prayers for you during this difficult time. Jeff served on the Downtown Revitalization Committee in Cordele for many, many years and I got to know him well when I became the Director of the Program. To say I thought the world of him would be an understatement. What an amazing man that loved his family and his community. "Mr. Jeff" was a true friend. I will be thinking of you all. Much Love, Monica Mitchell-Rentfrow
