Jane, how sad I feel that Jack has left us but how joyous I feel knowing that he is now free ~ I picture Jack Duffy meeting your Jack on his way and the laughs they are sharing ~ Jack and Jack ~ imagine! They both had their impish ways. Your love for your husband was even more evident in your care for him these past few years. What a wonderful representation of how God intended for us to love each other. And, your loving touch extended itself beyond to others, even me, and I am so grateful. The smiles and comfort you brought to my heart throughout the years I will not ever forget. My thoughts and prayers are with you Jane, and with Jack too. May our Lord be with you both always!
