Eulogy for my brother. I'd like to thank and acknowledge Debbie for all you've done here and for being there for Jack through this 14 month ordeal. He found his soul mate in you.

Uncle Jack- You were a man that made quite an impression on everyone you met. You lived life your way- and God bless you for that. You have left behind some wonderful children and grandchildren to carry on your legacy, and for that we thank you. You will be missed by all that knew and loved you.

To my dad, the one that I always respected the most. I feel lucky to have had you as a dad, you always knew how to keep things interesting. I learned so much from you, and will dearly miss your advice and our Sunday talks. Thank you for always taking the time to make us all feel so loved and important. I miss you and love you always dad.

Your going leaves a void that can never be filled. You were the quintessential irreplaceable person so unique and treasured we will always remember with love, affection and good humor. I am grateful to have shared the time and experiences we had - both the good and the not so good of the past 14-15 months of your courageous struggle. We will hold you in our hearts. Heres to you Jack. Lance

How do I express all the memories of shared times in the 60 years of having you as a part of my world in a few sentences? I can't.
I have always been grateful you were there when I needed you. Thank you.
I will love you and miss you always.
your little sister, Kathy

Daddy I love you so much. I am so grateful I was blessed to be your daughter for so many wonderful years. Thank you for teaching me how to be the most generous person I know how to be. You always gave to everyone, you would give the shirt off your back to make someone else smile. I am grateful for all of the memories I have and will cherish them always. I know you will be will me, watching over me until we are reunited. All of my love dad, may you finally rest.
Love your one and only Gator
