I will always remember sitting on the porch with Jack talking about sports and our military service in Korea and mine in Vietnam. Jack taught me how to care for our lawns and all the problems that went with it. Jack and I enjoyed watching the old classic movies too. I will really miss those times I shared with my good friend. May he rest in peace , and I will see you again some day.

Jack and I were almost like brothers. We played ball together, as well as had mucho lunches and dinners together. Talked baseball, football and politics. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Go with GOD, Jack and keep them flying.

Dear Erma,

Valerie, Sawyer and I will miss Jackie very much. We will hold many happy memories close to our hearts.

I will also remember that Jackie was a talented artist, who encouraged my interest in art.

Jackie loved baseball and was very proud of his baseball collection. We also enjoyed many baseball games together growing up in Brooklyn.

Jackie and Erma shared so many so happy years together. Erma has cared so lovingly for Jackie as his health declined.

Jackie was a caring and loving person! I was so lucky to have had him for a cousin. I will miss Jackie very much!
