Dearest Susan and the other 2 "his girls". I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. He was a very special person to me. I will always hold a very, very special place in my heart for him. He was a wonderful person and friend. The real estate world has lost a realtor with so much class, integrity and honesty. Rest in Peace my friend.

DEAR SUSAN, KAREN AND BEVERLY:

DURING OUR YOUTH, JACK AND I WERE CLOSE FRIENDS AND ATTENDED SUNDAY SCHOOL TOGETHER AT THE ALGIERS METHODIST CHURCH ON OPELOUSAS AVENUE . JACK LIVED WITH HIS GRANDMOTHER IN ALGIERS AND WE ATTENDED ALL CHURCH YOUTH FUNCTIONS TOGETHER. WE ATTENDED SEPARATE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN ALGIERS. JACK MOVED TO MARRERO AND ATTENDED HIGH SCHOOL THERE AND I ATTENDED RUGBY ACADEMY IN UPTOWN NEW ORLEANS. MY LAST RECOLLECTION OF JACK WAS PLAYING IN A BASKETBALL GAME WITH HIM AT THE MARRERO HIGH SCHOOL GYM BETWEEN RUGBY ACADEMY AND MARRERO IN THE SPRING OF 1942 OR 1943.

THAT WAR SEPARATED US BUT I OFTEN RECOLLECTED MY CHURCH AND SCOUTING ACTIVITIES OF MY YOUTH WHEN WE WERE CLOSE FRIENDS. I HAVE A FAINT RECOLLECTION OF JACK AND I BEING BOY SCOUTS IN TROOP 4, THAT MET EACH FRIDAY IN THE LP&L BUS BARN ON ELMIRA STREET.

I NEVER KNEW THAT JACK HAD JOINED THE NAVY OR ATTENDED L S U BUT THAT WAS GOOD NEWS.
ALSO, I AM A TIGER. I AM FIVE MONTH YOUNGER THAN JACK.

YEARS PAST FOR BOTH OF US. WE RAISED FAMILIES AND GREW OLDER. JACK SETTLED IN THE ORMOND AREA AS DID MY SON CHILDS, III. BOTH WERE MEMBERS OF THE ST. CHARLES METHODIST CHURCH. CHILDS, III MOVED TO ORMOND IN 1982, WAS AN ATTORNEY FOR CHEVRON OIL CO. AND PASSED IN 1992.

I WISH JACK AND I COULD HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR LIVES TO CROSS ONCE MORE.

MAY GOD FIND A PLACE FOR JACK AT HIS RIGHT HAND AND BLESS AND KEEP HIS FAMILY HERE ON EARTH.

YOUR CALL WOULD BE WELCOME.

CHILDS DUNBAR, JR.
