  3. CandleImageJeffrey was our youngest Texas cousin, and therefore, the favorite. We called him “The Kid”. We will forever cherish our memories of those long summer days on Drexel Ave. in San Antonio playing with Eddie, Marilee, and Chris, while supposedly looking after The Kid. He was always a very special guy, and there is no question, that he will be missed by all who knew him. With deepest sympathy and love, Danna and Mary Hoyle, The Lindsey Girls.
