So sorry to hear of Jack's passing. We are so glad that we got to see him at Kelly & Jason's wedding. It was just like old times. Remember the neighborhood card games? I never heard of "queen in the hole, follow the queen" till we played with Jack. A lot of laughs. Another fond memory are the times we went to Wildwood...….the Vogue and then Yankee Clipper. Such good times. We will always remember Jack with love.
We pray for Jack and for all of the family that you find peace and comfort with each other and know that he will always be with you.
