Kaye and I are very sorry for your loss. We love you and Jack very much. Jack was an inspiration to us. We thank him for his career military service, for his career in law enforcement, for his time in the Mummers, in the Knights of Columbus, and for driving for many funerals. We also appreciated the times we spent together at many Knights of Columbus functions. You are both in our prayers. I remembered you in my mass and Communion this morning and in my Rosary and Chaplet of Divine Mercy this afternoon.

Uncle Jack was a special person. I will never forget when he took me to Wrestlemania down at the old Spectrum. He told me everything that was gonna happen before it did. I was only 12 I couldn’t understand how he knew what was going to happen. The night went down exactly how he said it would. My Uncle Jack was a special person. We love you and miss you. Love you Aunt Sandee!!
