Melody and Lisa, I remember your dad from Sylvania Alliance: a kind man with a warm smile. I'm glad you were able to spend his last days here with him.

As Jack's caretaker I did not get the pleasure of knowing him earlier in life but I know if I had, he would have had much to share with me and a lot of guidance to give. Jack's smile made me think about how I live my life and how I can be better. He was a very good man with a huge heart and a soul of gold. He believed in the human spirit and never complained. I get the sense that was his way. My sincerest condolences to Lois as well as Melody, Robin, Lisa, Linda & Leslie. It is the highest compliment to have been entrusted with your husband & father. I will miss my friend and his warm smile. May his light live on in your hearts for all of your days.. " See I have not forgotten you ... for I have carved you on the palm of my hand " Isaiah 49:15
