    Gloria and family, so sad to hear of Jacks passing. We shared Aug18 as our birthday even if a few years apart. He was my Dad’s nephew and we surly enjoyed some family reunions, especially Apple Day at Dick and Edith’s each October.
    And went we visited your home with our Daughter and Son-in-law Rick and took our trip to the Big Easy. May your fond memories make it easier with his passing
    Calm Seas and a Following wind sail him home.

    James and Kathryn Stover and family
