To family of Mr. Jack Upham, may we all have the energy and great mind that he had when we are older.....

To Mr. Upham, if you can see this message from above: On one hand, I am thrilled that you have re-joined your lovely wife, whom I still miss; your son, military buddies and other friends.

Yet, I'm going to miss you - even though you thought that I was gaining too much weight the last time we saw each other.... You were a true friend and wonderful role model. Because of you, I am better person.

Take care,
