Sweetie:

You were the best thing that every happened to me.

We lived the American Dream!

We had two wonderful children that we could be proud of.

Our daughter gave us a special grandson, your buddy.

You added onto our East Drive house and made me a beautiful sewing room
And sew I did!

You promised me a Rose Garden and you designed it and planted it for me
and we enjoyed it together.

You played beautiful music on the piano for me.

We traveled the highways and biways.

We had 56 great years together and then it was your turn to leave me.

And now, I'm making you a Memory Garden, you're in my heart forever,
you'll not be forgotten.

Love you,

Your Sweetie

Some thoughts about our special friend....

Jack had many amazing attributes. He was extremely intelligent, had a witty sense of humor, was self taught to play the piano, loved his family, cared about people, and would gladly give a helping hand. What comes to mind at this writing is his generosity.

We first met Jack and Dian at church. We each had a 6-month-old son - they had Charlie, we had Mark. One Saturday they invited us over to their house for Dian's homemade pizza, and we have been friends ever since. By the way, Charlie and Mark are 55 years old now!

One example of Jack's generosity is when our son, Mark, graduated from high school, we as a family drove to Disneyland. Along the way Art developed a severe blood clot in his leg which landed him in a Los Angeles hospital for 15 days in very serious condition. Jack and Dian insisted that Jack fly down to LA and help Art fly home. As it turned out it wasn't necessary, but Jack was right there to help if we needed him.

Another time, our youngest son Scott was starting his last year of college and both he and Art lost their jobs that summer. Neither of them could find work as the economy was much the same as it is now...you couldn't buy a job. Jack was always a great believer in education, to go as far as you could go. Every college quarter, he and Dian faithfully helped Scott out financially so he could finish out the year and get his music teaching degree.

Everyone who knew Jack knew how much he was into computers. He used them, taught them, collected them, fixed and built them. He thought everyone should have one...NOT ME! I did not want one, but after awhile, with Jack's urging, I started to show a little interest. Here came Jack and Dian with a "Jack Built" computer for me. He not only gave it to me, but set it up, spent many, many hours teaching me how to use it, and kept it in good running condition. Because of Jack, I love my computer! It's like a hobby to me and I would never part with it.

Jack was a patient, generous, and caring man. We are going to miss our great friend immensely.

There is not enough I can say about this man. Wonderful husband. Wonderful father. And a great friend. Always there to help in any way he could no matter what was asked of him. Some times you didn't even have to ask. He'd just show up. And he gave 100% every time. No questions asked. The most even tempered, easy going person I have ever met. Not sure I'll ever meet anyone like him again. Good luck on your next journey Jack. You will always be loved and missed by everyone who knew you. None of us were done with you yet Jack. Peace!

Just one more time Dad …
I want to go for a boat ride with you, we had so much fun on the water … even when the gear broke in the motor and we got pulled back to Mukilteo Beach by your friend from work. Or, all the times we went water skiing … you were so proud of me when I finally got up on one ski.

Just one more time Dad …
I want to see you in my rearview mirror as we race our cars through the country roads … or call you when the Spitfire leaves me along side of the road, I know you'll be right there to help me … and hear you say “that's my girl” when I pull a faster time than you running the auto slalom.

Just one more time Dad…
I want to sit at the dinner table and listen to you tell us a story or how something works, tell mom what a great job she did on dinner and get a great big hug when I leave to go home.

Just one more time Dad …
I want to hear you laugh out loud … play the piano … tell me I look pretty … drink coffee and eat another cookie … and tell me how your “asa-do-phis of the glevis” was acting up.

Just one more time Dad …
I want you help set up the family train set at Christmas time while wearing the locomotive hat and scarf … sing Happy Birthday to you … and wish you a Happy Father's Day.

I wasn't done with you yet … love you Dad.
