Lucy and Family,
My deepest sympathies. Lisa shared with me stories about Jack as I shared stories about my Special Needs son. I am so sad to hear of Jack's passing. You and your family are in my prayers.

WOW, 25 years! Time sure does fly. I new Jack when his brother Ryan attended Little Footsteps childcare in Somers Point at the age of 4 or 5. A friend and I planned a benefit for Jack when he was born called “Helping Hands for baby Jack”. I think we raised $5,000 dollars to help pay for a helicopter trip to Chop. He was a special boy (young man) with a great smile. He touched many lives. Lucy and family, I hope the memories you have of Jack bring you a smile, lighten your heart and offer you peace in the days ahead. Hugs to you all.
