Uncle Jack, if i could be there for your memorial I would. My prayers are with those who are left behind and with anyone who's life you touched. I will always cherish my memories of you throughout my childhood, especially for the brief time you lived in Florida. God be with my cousins and his other children as they deal with the loss of their father, Dixie for the loss of her husband, and my Aunt Joyce for the loss of her ex husband and everyone else in Uncle Jacks blended family. Uncle Jack was always 'larger than life' and tongue in cheek with a one of a kind humor and a 'take no crap' attitude, (with a different platitude of course). You will be missed and I will remember you fondly. Your niece, Kristen

No more Sunday breakfast,no more trips, no more "looks", you know what we mean, no more pens, no more "pass the jelly and ketchup". No more laughing till it hurt. Until we meet again Jack. Your brother Kenny and his wife June.

I always enjoyed our informal visits,Jack.I can assure you I was not only better informed,but also "enlightened and educated" in a way a person can't get out of a text book! And,more importantly,thank you for not only your public service,but also for serving our country.

I guess I'm the first to sign your guestbook, but I know I won't be the last. Uncle Jackie, I hope you don't mind me saying, how bizarre is it that you would go so quiet into that good(?) night. You were never a quiet man. Quite a charmer lol and always with that twinkle in your eye; very mischievous, you were. And funny. And so very loved. And you will now be so very missed. You'll see me later, unless I see you first haha.
