My Heartfelt Sympathy goes out to the family of Geoffrey. I met Geoff while Sub Teaching at Christopher School since April of this year. After talking with Geoff, he shared with me some Personal Career Information. I told Geoff that I am a Business Owner Specializing in Consultant Work (Grants/Opening Businesses). Once I told him that, he immediately ask me will I open his Music Business for him? I told him yes! So a week before his passing we were going to meet to get started on opening his business. Geoff Family and Friends, it was truly wonderful to know a Hardworking Person like Geoff!
