Dad,
I love you and miss you already. I’m sorry we were separated by so many miles and I couldn’t see you as much as my heart wanted to. You were a great dad and always a good man. I have several voice messages on my phone that I will keep and listen to for many years to come.. you always ended our conversations with I love you boy..
I love Dad.. thanks for being a great dad and example

I will miss you and your jokes. I miss the shoe fairy who used to come at night and polish my shoes. I will miss your words of wisdom. I will miss your love, but I will also remember that you always loved me. I know it is selfish, but I really want to hear you say "love you girl" one more time.

              I met Jack approx. a year or so before he passed . He greeted me warmly when we met and we talked for a while . As I was getting ready to leave he called me over and took my hand and told me he was very glad to have met me and to come back anytime . He then very gently and sweetly kissed my hand . This touched me deeply as he was in failing health yet he took the time to warmly welcome me to his home and to make sure I was comfortable . I truely never met such a gracious person. 

My thoughts and prayers go out to Geri and Jacks entire family ! RIP Jac
