I always loved Uncle Jack's smile and laugh. I remember fondly our family trip in a motor home when we went to Florida for the Orange Bowl. And the 4th of July at our house when the bag of fireworks caught a spark and the whole bag went off at once! Dad and Uncle Jack were not laughing that day! He will be missed :(
