Jack is my second cousin; he and my dad, Bob Harris, we’re first cousins; their moms were sisters . My husband and I and our son Bryan Cozzi often visited Jack and Sylvia when we came to Atlanta. I had no idea he had passed away until today when I tried to call him and the number was disconnected. I am so sad. Stephen or Tom- if you get this message please call me at 570-588-0556.

Dad, we will miss you dearly. Thanks for your generosity and guidance over the years. We didn't always see eye to eye but I always respected you. You are a great role model and I am who I am as a result of who you are.
You were always there for me and I'll always be there for you.

It was my pleasure to have known Jack and Sylvia here at Park Springs. I enjoyed talking to Jack and remembering our last visit outside in the courtyard on a beautiful day in late November. I will miss his humor and smile.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
