Ah Jack I can't believe your're gone buddy. We became great freinds almost from the day we met. I remember all the jokes you would tell and your laugh was contagious. You and Ann were some of the best neighbors a freind could ever want or ask for. You were like a Grandpa figure to Nicole too. There is no doubt you are up there walking the streets of gold, trying to find that perfect golf course. I can pitcure you saying it sure is nice to have two good arms again, and not be in pain. You are probably looking around to see if there is a good Pizza Hut around. No doubt any food is better up there. We will always miss you. We love you and Ann so much. The world has lost a great freind, father and husband. Heven however has gained. I will miss you my freind. I can't wait until we are all up there together one day. Who knows hopefully we will get to be neighbors again. No doubt you will see me coming and say something like " Hey buddy, you know you can't get in here without a watermellon...so where is at it ? You know me I deal with sadness with a smile or laugh through the tears. I will miss you my freind and like we always we never said good bye. We love you and hope to join you on your porch with that Hevenly watermellon one day. Rest in peace our freind.
