Carol & Jay I am so sorry for the loss of Jack, he was the best guy I have ever known. My parents thought the world of Jack and I was always so proud to call him my cousin. Jack always took time to stop and talk and always had me laughing. Carol I always loved seeing you and Jack walk in the door at a family function the both of you were so friendly and sincere. Carol please know that you and Jay as well as Jays family are in my thoughts and prayers.
