Linda and Michael,

We loved Jack so much. He brightened our lives so much especially
when he visited us in NC. We all had so much fun. I remember him saying even if he got as far as Columbia, SC and he heard it was snowing in NC, he would turn around and go back. He and I always had the thing going about the snow cone stand in Kings Mountain, and the lack of stop lights. Mike remembers all the summers he came to Florida and worked for Jack. He really loved Jack.

You and Michael are in our thoughts and prayers.

Love To You Both,

Mike and Theresa
