Uncle Jack, I was blessed with the honor of giving you your final toast. I fell short of truly honoring you with my simple words of praise and rememberance. Make no mistake, no one that truly knew you needed any words from me about what a great person you are! Thanks for all the great times and a million laughs! See you again!

Dear Snow and family, I am so sorry for you lost, our prayers go out to you and all of your family. I will never forgot how nice Jack was to my daughter Kristi. It is because of his kindness to pick her up that she received her drivers license. If you need anything please feel free to call.
