  1. Margaret and I are so sorry for your loss. It was our good fortune to have had Jack as a friend in our lives. His care for our pups was special. We will miss him and his signature laugh. Our thoughts are with you all.

  4. Deb and Dave,
    We’re so sorry we can’t be there, but please accept our sincere condolences. I only met Jack a few times, but it was instantly clear that he was someone you would be proud to call your friend.
    Our thoughts are with you both.

  5. Jack was a fine individual whom I saw much as the father figure that was vacant from my life. He and our wide ranging conversations wi be greatly missed.
