Not sure what to say?

I just read about my cousin Jack. We have lost touch over the years, but want to send my condolences to his brother David and the family.

I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Jack and his passing. I loved him dearly, like a father. I have so many fond memories of him and Ronna and growing up with cousin Jay and Gary. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Hugs and Kisses cousin Nancy

We were so sad to hear of Jack's passing, Gary. It really is the end of an era. We will always have fond memories of your mom and dad - sipping wine with your mom and sharing laughs, chatting up a storm with your dad before a Badger game. We love them dearly! Our prayers are with you.

Gary & Family,
I am sorry to hear about the passing of your father. I feel like I have known him my whole life as he and Ronna were dear friends of my parents as long as I can remember. My relationship with Jack was both personal and professional and I always enjoyed his fatherly mentoring he would provide when we talked. He was so loved by all and will be greatly missed. May your memories provide some comfort during this difficult time. Unfortunately I am out of town and will...

David & Family~
I am overwhelmed with sadness. Jack was a constant in our life for as long as I can remember. He was good as they get professionally and as kind and generous as a friend. I am so grateful for the time I spent with him after he lost Ronna. We have lost a great guy. With a very heavy heart...
and much love,

Gary and Family: I'm very sorry to hear about your dad. Unfortunately, I'll be unable to attend the services, but I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I can't tell you how much I've learned from him over the years. He was a great guy.
