Eileen, so sorry to hear the passing of Jack. He was always such a great guy. It’s not easy to lose the love of your life, my heart knows your sorrow. Jackie
What can I say, Jack was my joke buddy. At family functions, I could not wait to see him and swap jokes. My heart goes out to Eileen and his family. The man was quick with a joke in so far as I would have to prepare jokes well in advance and sometimes write them down so I would not forget. Good times I will never forget.
My brother Jack was a terrific family man. Whenever you needed help, Jack was there.
Some of my fondest memories of Jack were when our dad was in a rehab facility after being in the hospital. Every visit, Jack would make the long drive up, playfully push dad around in the wheelchair and offer him packages of sugar-free cookies (dad was diabetic). Every day dad would ask, “Is Jack comin’ today?!” because dad loved Jack’s visits.
Jack loved making people happy.
Jack passed away on July 29th, which also as it turns out, was our dad's birthday.
So maybe Jack heard dad say,
"Hey Jack! You bring me any of those sugar-free cookies for my birthday? "
And of course..one last time.. Jack made the long drive up..
We love you Jack. You will be missed.
Your sister, Karen
