Major Jack Cheney was my Uncle, my mother Margie Cheney Mitchell was his older sister. I spent many of my younger years with the Grandfather and grandmother Cheney and Jack was only 12 when I was born, so he was more like a older brother, then a Uncle. I use to follow him around, anytime I was in Raymondville. I thought the world of him and really looked forward to going back to Raymondville and seeing him, after we moved away. I have so many great memories of him, that I will never forget... I know that he is really happy now, to be back with his Mary and the rest of the Cheney's that went before him... Rest in Peace Uncle Jack, I will neve forget you, never.. Love, Buckshot...
