"“Count your blessings instead of your crosses.
Count your gains instead of your losses.

Count your joys instead of your woes.
Count your friends instead of your foes.

Count your smiles instead of your tears.
Count your courage instead of your fears.

Count your full times instead of your lean.
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.

Count your health instead of your wealth.
Love your neighbor as much as yourself.”

Cheers to a great man, my dad. Miss you Daddio."

"I have had the luck to serve Mr and Mrs. Healy for the past 5 years at the local drug store. I'm so sorry to hear of  his passing and I wanted to extend my sympathies to Mrs Healy and  his family.  He  was one of my favorite patients and I'll miss him. He would always talk with me and ask me about myself ( which you don't get often in retail) and he always said  something to make me laugh.  We always talked about Ft Myers, which is where I am from, and I've heard many stories about his children. I'm truly sorry for your loss, he'll be fondly remembered."

"Dear Dad,

It took me until this weekend to leave a tribute to you because this is the first time where it has been quiet enough to think.  I will miss our "debates/ clashing of opinions" and just plain acting silly.  I love you and I am proud to be your #1 daughter.   I love you dad!"

"I'll miss my good friend and all the fun we all had when he was with us.  Even though he is now gone, the joy he brought us is still with us.  I cannot help but smile when I think of him. The Jakeisms will always be part of my language.  God bless him and may he rest in peace.  Our prayers are also with Kathy and the rest of the family. Jack will always remain a part of us. Ed"

We will always remember the good times we had with him, Kathy and the kids (the girls 1-4 and John) images of Jack in his pool enjoying life and on his exercise bike having a beer.

Love Jim and Betty"
