Uncle Jack, one of our favorite memories happened on a visit to the White House in Washington, DC. You and Aunt Betty were out on vacation and we toured Arlington Cemetery, Smithsonian and White House Tour.
When we arrived at the White Hour we went thru security. Uncle Jack set off the alarm even after several attempts through the metal detector. Finally, the guard said " sir you must have something else on you". Uncle Jack simply said "just this little ole' knife in my boot". Ha! We all had such a laugh much later, of course, this was 35 years ago.
All of our love and prayers go out to our extended family,
Richard and Judith (Lambrich) Sutton
