Memories

To Jack my brother who was the most wonderful brother any sister could have. I miss you so, all your daily calls to me and our long talks. Our laughing and talking of our families, our dogs who we both loved so much. Talking how much fun we had while growing up, driving Mom and Dad crazy. We had such good memories and love for each other and our families. Your life was cut short, but you had such a good life, but I'm not saying anyone of us was ready to let you go. We know you are in a better place but I have a great big hole in my heart, but one thing you are in heaven with Dad and at peace now.

Dear Cheryl and family, My sincere sympathy to you. Jack was a special guy and will be remembered fondly for his dedication to helping Mercury succeed. He was very talented in his trade and will also be remembered for the practical jokes he liked to pull on people here. You always had to watch it when you left him for fear there might be a sign left on your back. May you now find comfort in the wonderful memories you had with him. He is now with our Lord and you know he's now in new terrority for his humor and practical jokes. God Bless Him. Gloria
