There are no perfect words to ease the pain you are feel at this difficult time. Just to take a bit of comfort in the fact you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am happy I was able to meet Jack a few times and it was very evident the joy you both brought to each other and complimented each other. Cherish the memories the two of you made. Remember the laughs. “What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes part of us.” -Helen Keller Lewis & Gloria

I am so sorry to hear about Jack. I can't imagine how difficult it must have been for your family. I haven't seen Jack in a number of years however my mother, Kay Toomey, Jack's aunt, told me that he had a very happy family life. Please accept my sincere condolences. Debby Sullivan
