"Big Jack", as we called him, was a close and very good neighbor of ours. Jack would stop by our house on his way in or out of the neighborhood while we were working in the yard and we would "solve the world's problems", sometime for hours. We always talked about a number of topics from MD politics, which we both despised, to our financial situation, to house repairs, to boating and camping. We always appreciated Jack stopping by as it got us out of doing yard work. We will miss Big Jack and his personality of going from serious to funny in a nano second. Jack, old friend, rest in pease and know you were a good man. We love Addie and you.
