Not sure what to say?

Remembering our friend and uncle, jack smith indeed a friend who although he suffered from a terminal disease, he never let it detract from his joy of life. Undeterred by the fact that he never found the one, his friendship, kindness and indomitable cheerfulness touched all that knew him. It can be said that he was never observed to be angry or sullen, or even raise his voice. His gentle disposition and encouraging attitude gave us confidence in all our endeavors. He boasted not of himself...

Jack was a very talented artist and a very kind gentle man. He will be missed.

A man who loved the arts and life more than anyone I've ever known or probably will know. He was a loving uncle to all of his great-nieces and nephews, and always eager to hear from us, no matter where we were. He will now be our guardian angel.

I always enjoyed Jack's visits to SnoWizard to do illustrations for our advertising. It was like a visit from a friend who knew exactly what we needed done. He NEVER disappointed! His talent, intellect, humor, charm and honesty will be so missed. His spirit, grace and beautiful art left the world a more wonderful place. Jack was a "one of a kind" true gentleman! Sending healing prayers to Jack's family and friends for peace and comfort.
