We were deeply saddened to learn of Jeff's passing. All of our family were fortunate to have known Jeff in some capacity or other. Heather got to know him through the District 16 tournaments the past couple of years and learned so much about Little League and the game of baseball. She also thoroughly enjoyed his wit and way of cutting to the chase on just about any topic. Mark had the pleasure of going through drafts with him and getting to know him in a variety of game situations. The boys both got to know him on the field and his kindness to them will never be forgotten. Our deepest sympathies to Cheryl and the Kraus children--you will be in our prayers during these difficult days.
