On July 17, 2017 heaven gained another angel. Our amazing 11 year old son, Jeffery Steven Riley, was granted the gift of eternal life and received his angel wings by our almighty Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

He is now our personal guardian angel. We don't understand why this happened but, I guess we're not supposed to. The one thing we do know is that Jeffery wouldn't want us to cry. He would want us to carry on his happiness by making others happy and always making someone smile.

This young man was so very special to so many people. We were the lucky ones because we got to call him "Our Son". Jeffery was our handsome, precious, sweet, loving, caring wonderful young man that had the knack for making people happy. Especially us. As his parents we were more than proud to say the very least. We were biased. He was and always will be our miracle.

Jeffrey was preceded in death by his name sake, great uncle, Jeffrey Lynn Brothers; aunt, Heather Lynn Riley; sister, Amber Lynn Riley; uncle, Scottie Newsome; grandmother, Ginny Wilson and grandfather, Kenneth S. Riley.

Jeffrey is survived by his parents, Steve and Jackie Riley, Attalla; brother, Christopher Riley, Attalla; sister, Courtney Souders, Birmingham; grandparents, Michael and Brenda Brothers, Gallant; aunts and uncles, Thomas and Christie Spitzley, Argo, and Randy and Tonie Lynne Simmons, Altoona, and a large host of cousins and friends.

Funeral Service will be at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday at Collier-Butler Chapel with burial to follow at Highland Cemetery, Piedmont. Visitation will be from 5 pm - 8 pm at the funeral home Monday. .
