Dearest Cousins,

It was an honour to know Uncle Jack. He shared his memories and experiences with Jim and I whenever we stopped in for a visit. I will miss his optimism and energy.

I am sorry to hear that Jack has passed away. What an amazing life! I was always amazed at how positive he was whenever we visited him. It's hard to imagine that he is gone.
