Margaret, our deepest sympathies on the loss of Jack. We didn't know he had died until we saw his name listed in St Ita's bulletin. We have many fond memories of Jack, mostly from interacting with him at St Ita's with Larry and also at St. Joseph's. We will be making a donation to Maryville Academy in his name. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
