It has been a true honor to have been the “next” door neighbor of Jack and Marys for over 15 years. God placed us here for a reason. I truly loved them both as if they were my family. You made it to “100” sweet man. Now Rest In Peace! I will always try to “ not do anything you wouldn’t do!” I will miss you my friend!
