Steve, Grace, Steph, Jon, Kyle, Olivia, Debbie, Billy, Will Kristen, Sean, Jackie, Sharon and Paul,

Uncle Jack made life fun...seal calls in the ocean, playing on the beach, swimming around the pool in the back yard, picking people up in the middle of a marching band during a parade...you just never knew what to expect...I will miss him, his laugh, his smile, those sparkling eyes, and our talks over the last year and a half..Love to you all.
Kathy
