Marian, Pat and family...sorry to learn of Jack's passing. He was a great guy but I just never knew how to take him sometimes, is he joking or serious but he always ended a conversation laughing. Guess he just knew how to "get my goat" as they (whoever they are) say. He will keep his friends who are waiting for him in Heaven laughing when he joins them. May he rest in peace.
