Johnny, Jill, Janine, and Jeffery, The last time I saw Uncle Jack was just a few years ago when he visited my Dad when he was sick and unable to leave the house. He visited often, usually when we was in Vestal running his errands. He was always very thoughtful. Dad looked forward to his visits. His smile always lit up the room. I have lots of memories of going to your house for picnics, those were fun times. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.
