Diane and Family: I was so sorry to hear of Jacks passing. Your Dad and Mom played a big part in our family. Jack as my Dad's right-hand man, and your Mom just a wonderful family friend. I would always try to get extra gas if I knew my Dad was out of town, and your Dad would always catch me. We also knew we could get Jack to give us some money out of the cash register if we bugged him enough. Our parents had a very long friendship! Wonderful memories!
