We were so fortunate that Jock became part of our family. He loved Mark John and Melissa as if they were his own. When they were little they were spoiled with ice cream runs to the kitchen. Mark John would have to go to the track when the load of sand came, Jock would be waiting in the shed row with 2 shovels and a huge smile, I don’t know who was more excited! Of coarse, Melissa couldn’t be left out, she had to feed the horses. He was so patient with them. We celebrated 4th of July, Christmas, birthdays, and graduations. There were car shows and dinners at home. Who can forget the picnics at Hillcrest Park!!!! Jock always, well usually, gave me high marks for my cooking, for which I am thankful. His favorites were pork tenderloin, hamburger pie, and cheesecake. Never rhubarb!! You are in our hearts, were truly loved, and will be sorely missed. Rest In Peace my friend.

I wish we could've had more time with you. I will never forget my 1st pink boombox you bought me. I drove Dad crazy with it just like you said to do. I will always cherish our conversations, your hugs and your love. Hope you have Nancy walking on that green already. I believe I know more about horses now than ever before. I will always keep my promise to you. I LOVE and Miss you so much already.
