Jack Todd was a good brother and was always there when us girls needed him. My husband Tim loved him as well. They were always kidding each other about the Navy and Marines. Jack loved his family and grandkids. I will miss making him biscuits, fried potatoes and canned tomatoes. Lol. What a party they are having in heaven. I hope I will be meet ing them one day. He probably has Mom and Edna cooking. I know Mom is making her "youngen" a pan of biscuits and a plate of fudge.
