    Geraldine,
    I was so shocked and saddened to hear that Jack was gone, but now I’m thinking about what he is experiencing and smiling. I’m so sorry for your loss, but so happy for Jack. Tell Kim that we are thinking of her as well.
    Love,
    Jim and Debbie

    Geraldine and Family,
    Jack Mr.Jack will be deeply missed by all. What a wonderful neighbor and friend we have been blessed with for over 12 years. He was like a grandpa to my boys and nieces who never missed an opportunity to go for a visit, walk, share a popsicle and candy, or a meal. I have never met such a wonderful and giving man, he always remembered everyone he met, as well as their name. He will be forever remembered and in my family’s hearts.

    Love,
    John, Kim, Corey and Alex Whitmore
