We'll miss this guy's optimism and input at Crime Stoppers and WCMVAC car club. So sorry for your loss.

Betty and family, we are deeply saddened by this. We are sorry that we cannot be with you for the visitation, but Jack's condition pretty much confines us to home. Jack so enjoyed his time with Ronnie at Crime Stoppers and we have fond memories of the spaghetti dinners. We send sincere sympathy.
