To my Aunt Ruth and all of my cousins,
I am very sorry for Jack's passing. He was a great guy and an uncle I really respected. I have fond memories of him from a visit to KC back in the early 70's and of his hospitality when my mom and I came to visit for pheasant season for a few years in the mid 1990's. Rest in peace, Jack.

Ruth and family,
If there is anything I can do, please let me know. I love you all.
