I was Jack's second grade teacher. I am so very sorry to learn of his passing. I have many happy memories of Jack as a young boy. I loved his spirit, his sense of humor and his love of learning. I, too, have lost a son and I know the unspeakable loss that you are enduring. You are in my prayers and Jack will remain in my heart as one of my really special students. My heart is breaking. Please accept my most sincere sympathy.
