Not sure what to say?

Maybe we did not see eye to eye all the time but, I know you loved me.
You were not only our (mine and our sister Donna) Brother, you took care of us growing up. You were like our dad and a caregiver.
I will always love and miss you.

My Brother, You are now with Mom and our Aunt Lena.

Even though I only met him a few times h was so much fun tobe around. People can learn so much from their parents and even though I only knew him briefly he left such agood impression on me as well as my Daughter. He was my friend as soon as I met him , he wouldn't have it any other way. We all will miss him and I am glad to have met him as he was so much fun to be around

Jack was loved by a lot of people. I knew him since I was 5 yrs old, growing up next to him. He was a fun, loud, and caring guy. It's still hard not being around his cooky antics. Jack will definitely be missed.

I worked many years with Zach at Walmart, and I have many fond memories of what a great guy he was. I remember how he could just make your day a whole lot better with a little story or a funny joke. I am glad we crossed paths many times since we both retired. I wiil miss him. RIP

Donna, I still have the bird house Jack made for me from the lumber we gave him from my dad's basement. He was a wonderful person and a fabulous neighbor. I will keep you in my prayers. Sincerely,

The world won't be the same without Jack. His smile, his jokes, his laughter. He was a wonderful man. Rest in peace.

Jack was my cousin; his mom and my mom were sisters. I hadn't seen Jack for many years, but I remember him so fondly from my childhood. He had a good heart and was always ready to help. My deepest sympathy goes to his family. May your memories bring you comfort.

Anyone who knew Jack could not ignore his light. Just being around him always made me feel good! A true angel on Earth, now in heaven.
Much love always,
