  1. To the family of Jeff Helberg. I just wanted to tell his son that his dad really loved him a lot. Jeff was a strong man and I respected his life experiences and his work ethic very much. I received word of this event with a great deal of sadness for a bright light that still had do much to give the world. He was a person who really cared for the important people in his life, especially his family and his friends in the military. I spoke with him a lot about his experiences and I will miss his character and his sense of humor. He will be missed. Joye Sarka.
