    candle 8I’m gonna miss you Jack! So is the rest of the world! It’s hard to explain in a few word’s and sentences how loved you were by everyone that was blessed to be around you. You were that type of person that lite up a room when you entered with that smile and laugh you always brought with you. My heart felt sympathy goes out to Carol, Drew and the whole family. I know God is with you this very moment — smiling and laughing along with you in heaven my friend. Thanks again for all the great times and memories Jack! You won’t ever be forgotten!
