"Today would have been your 75th birthday. I am sure strawberry ice cream would be a part of it. Sad news - friendley's has closed down. Is it because of your business? Or because our group is now gone? Could be. I still see so many "signs" of you around. What's with 11:00 at night? Is that a signal? Rev. Rob still talks about you. Your name still comes up at shuffleboard. You have touched a lot of peoples lives. Miss ya so much. Hope you are at peace."
"Two long, long years. AND tonight is the strawberry festival at our church. You loved going and teasing the young people who served your portion of strawberries. People still remind me of how much you loved strawberries. Friendlies strawberry ice cream. Five scoops in a large bowl and don't forget to add the 3 cherries and whipped cream on top. I still get many signs of your presence. I kept the white feather that flooted down and landed on my shoe while I was visiting a favorite place of ours on the bench by the water, You are still very close. I was told the feather was a sign of you telling me that you are OK. I surely hope so. So, so much drama in your life. I hope you are able to rest finally and let go of all stress that you had dumped on you. RIP, Jack. Till we meet again. my country bumpkin."
"I feel your presence everywhere. And last Friday, Hummmm. Very interesting. Hope you are getting some peace, however, the vibes I get seem to point elsewhere. You could not solve problems (drama) while on earth and you need to let them go now. Rest peacefully, till we meet again. ...... Love ya"
"Your favorite holiday is coming up. I visited Maureen 2 weeks ago, and she talked a lot about you. She mentioned the time you went to the Drs. and gave out valentine hearts to all the office girls. I still have the box from last year in my bookcase. You were very generous to everyone. God Bless."
"Miss you more each day. Happy Birthday to my angel. I feel your presence often. Hope you are free from all that discusting drama you endured each day. Now who is there for all the tears and fighting? You were so upset 2 days before you left. I can truly blame those closest to you for all the stress they created for you..Hope you are at peace now. Till we meet again....... love ya."
"Missing you Jack, i know you only wanted a hug from a pretty girl for your birthday. And maybe 6 scoops of Strawberry ice cream. Really happy we had the chance to know you. Thanks for all you did for Mom."
"Jack, it has been a pleasure having you so much a part in my family's life. Camping, bon fires, card playing, Ocean City, Pizza parties, We have so many happy memories of fun times. I do miss you terribly. You are no longer fighting to breathe. You are no longer suffering with your digestion problems. You are now free to fly. I will see you again in a better place. Love ya. honey. God Bless."
"Jack, you will be missed by so many. You were the taxi for those needing a ride to the Dr.s, or to pick meds up. You took ladies to do their banking, shopping, etc. You provided music for many in the library while playing cards, you were the captain of the shuffleboard teams for many years. You received several trophies for beating out the other buildings in the playoffs. You wre EVERYWHERE. It will be hard to walk the halls without running into you. You fixed t.v.s, took stuff to good will, moved things too heavy for others to pick up with your "l'll red wagon". This place will not be the same without you. And at the nutrition center, you handed out the milk and dessert, along with teasing everyone along the way. You gave it your all. It will be very hard to replace you in everything you did. You never turned down anyone needing a helping hand. God speed, Jack. May you now get your well deserved rest."
"Even though Jack didn’t want us to make a big deal about his passing, I really wanted to share how much he is missed.
He and my mother spent many happy times together in the last 9 years. He was a part of our family during birthdays, BBQ’s and vacations. It will be hard to pass by Friendly’s without thinking of him and all the strawberry ice cream he could eat! Camping won’t be as fun. And the next game of domino’s will be sadder.
He treated my mother such kindness. I know she misses his goodnight calls.
As sad as his passing is we are better to have had him in our lives. We miss you, Jack."
Have a suggestion for us?
