  1. Jack was a great friend and a great neighbor for 33 years. We will truly miss him.

  2. Dear Elaine: know that my prayers continue for you. I am so very sorry for your loss. This is a message that someone sent to me when Jan died: rest assured that in his dying, in his flight through darkness toward a new Light, he held you in his arms and carried your closeness with him. And when he arrived at God, your image was imprinted on his joy-filled soul. Fondly, Pat

  3. Mark & Family – I am so sorry for your loss, please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
