Jack married my dearest friend Pat, therefore he become a dear friend too. Although miles have separated us for years, we have been as close as close can be. We have shared so many of life’s experiences: our weddings, the birth of our children, losing loved ones, fighting through illness and just the day to day happiness of talking, exchanging small meaningful gifts and being there for one another. Jack will forever be in our hearts. The world has lost a giant, Heaven has gained a Saint.
