My sincere condolences in this sad time. I feel so lucky that my childhood memories include days spent at uncle Jack's and aunt Dorthy's running around with countless cousins. I know that these wonderful memories are a treasure left by our family, and I am so glad to have had such a family.

Uncle Jack and Aunt Dorothy were always two of my favorite people. As she has been sorely missed and never forgotten for many years now, so will he be missed and never forgotten as well. My deepest sympathies go out to his beloved children and grandchildren. I am so truly sorry for your loss.
