    Jack was a wonderful person. He helped me in more ways than most people can imagine. He was kind, generous and very supportive. I am a better person for knowing this wonderful man. He loved his wife and his children with his whole heart. Nothing made him happier than his family. Our lives will have an empty space without that laugh, that smile and that ever forthcoming joke. I love you Jack, forever and always!!!!
