Cathy,

We saw your post on Facebook about how to find Jack's obituary, and we so deeply saddened to learn of his passing. Please know that you and yours are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We remember you two so very fondly and the 2 1/2 years we were privileged to be your next door neighbors in the middle 1970s on West End Boulevard in Cape. We could not have asked for better landlords and friends than Jack and Cathy Gremore. Until we can see you in person, here's a big cyberhug from Patricia and me.
