i just learned today about jack's passing. there could be no doubt about your family's love and devotion to one another and it was easy to see, jack was the head of the house. he and doris were always larger than life to me and never wavered from what they expected from everyone in a clear, unambiguous manner and lovingly practiced what they preached and as role models were second to none. practically all my childhood memories were made at their house (whether they wanted me or not)where i always felt welcome. the meals that they cooked were some of the very best because we were all together to sit and eat and i watched and learned many things about life there. riding horses, swimming in the lake, eating apples, helping in the kitchen, screaming, laughing, fighting and running through the house and the yard, playing records as jack and doris and my mother and daddy trying to teach us kids how to dance the jitterbug, going to church in that sixty something cadillac. now those were some times. and i feel it incumbent upon me to say that jack jolly was the only man i've ever seen that could do justice to a bracelet and pinky ring. there are so many things i loved about being a part of that household and, now i realize i never expressed to doris and jack as a child is wont to do. now, as an adult i still struggle to find the words that could adequately express to doris, gregg, shane and teeter everything i should have said before now. i want to say thank you for allowing me to sit at the table. my hope is for your memories to be a help to remind you of all the sweetness and your faith remain strong to soften the pain and sadness of this earthly separation. if i can help in any way in the future, i'm still just through the woods.
