My love and prayers to the Tomlinson family. Jack & I worked together at Texas International and we both retired from Continental Airlines. We had lots of laughs and good times. They were like family to Kenn & me! Will miss our daily phone chats!

I’ ll always remember the first time he ate toast, eating Fritos with his ice cream and his chewing tobacco. He had Nancy and I go to the store to get some, so on our walk we decided to try a little. Yuck! We had to try to cover up the evidence but that didn’t work. He wasn’t too happy with us.
Jack made our childhood fun and exciting and I’ll always love him.
