Kay and Linda, I`m so sorry for your loss, I only met Jack a couple of times, but he was very nice and had a great sense of humor. I`m sure he is in heaven making a place for you and you will see him again one day! You have a lot of friends to help you through this time, don`t hesitate to call if you need something!
Love you both, Carolyn

Kay, Linda and Bo, I’m so sorry to hear that Jack passed away! Such a character he was … so full of life. I only wished I could’ve seen him when I visited in the springtime. I will always have fond memories of our family reunions at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Love and prayers to all of you.
Your cousin
