Dear Mary Virginia, I learned today of Jack's death while signing the guest book at McCommons for Mary Jean. I am saddened for you and your family. I remember so well your beautiful wedding, and think of you as you looked that day. What a striking couple you were! Aren't memories wonderful? They help us survive the painful times in life. I care and mourn with you as best I can. I haven't been where you are yet. May God grant you peace and a grateful heart for having loved and been loved by a super guy! Jo
