To the family of Jack - Unfortunately I was unable to make the service on Tuesday but I wanted to offer my heartfelt condolences to you all. I only reconnected with Jack a few yrs ago but have some very fond memories of him. When he wasn't struggling he was a great person to talk with, sing with and just be around. He will be missed and I pray he is at peace now. Regards, Mariann

Jack. You came from one side of town. I came from the other. We met at Roy W Brown middle school and became friends from day 1. Friends then. Friends now. Friends forever. RIP my friend. - Mark Weber
