What an honor it was to have had the opportunity to meet Jack! I don’t think I can ever remember a time that he wasn’t smiling, laughing, or sharing a story! I hold such fond memories of Christmas parades and backyard BBQ’s, with Jack’s famous hot wings, close to my heart. Sending much love to Pat, John, Guisella and the kids during such a difficult time.❤️ ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Much love, Cherie Graham
