More days than I can count, I have wished I was able to have met you, even for a moment. How would my life had been different if you were here? If only I could have those answers. I hope that Grandma, Dad and you are having a wonderful reunion. R.I.P. Grandpa Jack

I never had the pleasure of meeting my uncle as I was not born yet, but from all that I have heard he was a fun loving, father and husband. My mom and grandmother would talk frequently about him. He would have been proud of his son Terry and his granddaughter Terry Lynne and grandson Robert and their families

I was born after you were gone but your memory is kept alive. Some friends that knew you said you always laughed and loved life, my mom said you were a great brother. Your son was a wonderful person who sadly never got to know you. Your grandchildren are wonderful people and your great grandchildren are beautiful lovely people. Rest in peace Uncle Jack.
