Dave,
So sorry to hear of your Dad passing away. I tried to find your address to send a card but couldn't. I just wanted you to know I am thinking about you in this sad time.

Love, Carol Durst

Jack was a great man. I have many memories of time spent with him and family throughout my life. Like the time in Colorado when the shed next to the dynamite caught fire. Or sitting in his shop just talking. We will see each other again.
