MESSAGE TO FANS FROM SLAYER:
"Want to really piss off the Westboro Baptist Church at Jeff's Memorial Celebration? Do exactly what Slayer members and family are going to do - totally ignore them. They don't exist. And then come inside and celebrate Jeff's life with us."
Our condolences go out to Jeff's family, friends and the Slayer camp! Rock in Peace, Jeff!
