I was very sad to hear of Jack's passing. The unlocked door at the end of Wardrop where I could just walk in, grab a coffee and have a chin wag is one of my favourite memories of my time in Port Alberni. I wish I could have had a chance to introduce my growing family with Jack.

All my love to the Christians <3
