Memories Timeline


  1. John and family,

    I have been deeply saddened by the news of Uncle Jack’s passing. I can still hear his voice in my head with that New York accent, and see his smile. This is how I will always remember Uncle Jack, smiling and telling a story of something he found interesting or amusing…I just always loved the sound of his voice with that darn NY accent! My heart goes out to you all. I’m sure my dad met yours on the other side and they are sending all the love, healing, and comfort possible.
    With love and blessings, cousin,

  2. Our condolences to John and the family. Jack was such a great neighbor. His wit was quick and funny. We are sure he will be sadly missed. We are sorry to miss the service.

  3. My deepest condolences to the friends and family of Jack. May your treasured memories bring you joy, and may ‘the God of all comfort’ give you strength, along with a measure of peace for your grieving hearts at this most difficult time.
    2 Corinthians 1:3
