It was an honor and pleasure to meet Jack, and his family, thru the 87th reunions. Jack was a lovely gentleman, very much loved by everyone whose lives he touched.
It is with deep sadness I hear of Jack's passing, and the huge loss his family feels.
My deepest sympathies to the Higgins family.
My thoughts & prayers are with you all.
God bless you Jack Higgins, and your life well lived.
