Onada and JJ...I am so very sorry about the loss of Jack...he was a good man and I have lots of fond memories from back in the days of BMX bicycle racing...he was great with all the kids and just a great guy all around. Luke, Marshall and I all shared very special times together. I have been out of town and so disappointed I could not come to the visitation or funeral service...I would love to give you both a hug and tell you Marshall and I love you and wish you God's peace and blessings. Please call on us if we can be of any are both in our prayers.
