Dad loved his time spent up north, hunting, fishing and relaxing at his lake place in Cross Lake, MN. He enjoyed woodworking and building things with his hands.

Thinking of you all these days--would of liked to have been with you today--but am very glad I could see and listen via livestream.. I have pleasant memories of Jack from many years ago--and am saddened to think of all he suffered these last years---But now is a new chapter and you can all rest in the fact you did what you could under the circumstances.
