We have fond memories of Jack. He and Jackie took care of our dog, Frisco, when we were gone on vacation several times. Jack loved Frisco and enjoyed having him in his home. Jack was a very caring and lovable man. We would walk by his home and he would always be out enjoying the neighborhood ready to engage in a conversation! They were wonderful neighbors and he will be sadly missed! However, our wonderful memories of Jack with Jackie will live on forever!
