Loretta, I am so sorry for your loss of Uncle Jack. I remember him as having a wonderful sense of humor and usually laughing. He seemed so proud of his family. I felt welcomed in your home and at ease in Uncle Jack's relaxed approach to life! I could see so much of Uncle Jack in Daddy when they were together.

As always,
