Jack and I will always cherish the friendship we shared even those it was miles and sometimes continents between us. From the first time Jack dated me he shared so many memories with Barb, her brothers and of course her parents. They demonstrated the love and support that a family in love enjoy. The pinochle games and the times, Charlie,, her husband then boyfriend, was a little jealous of Jack being nearer Barb than her family let him be. Rest In Peace with your Charlie and your parents and loved ones. You will be missed and never forgotten.
Jack and Pat Currie
