Hi Sylvia, I just heard about Jack's passing. I'm so sorry, my condolences to you and the entire family. Jack was a master story We all loved that about him. He would always introduce me as "this is my cousin Wanda..." Of course I really was his cousin...he would always laugh after the intro...I have only fond memories of us working together at Sprague, he was a good Union President, who cared about the people. My prayers to you and the family.

Hi Silvia, I was truly shocked and saddened when I read Jack's obituary. I have fond memories of him from your stories when you and I were working together at VVH. Greg Lewis

Hi Silvia, Words can not express how sad this makes me . I was just talking to you both at Barb's party. We were all having a great time . We never know God's will or reason why He does things. We just have to believe in Him and know that we will all be united again at some point in the future. May God bless you and watch over you. Know that we all love you very much. Looking forward to seeing you when I return from Florida. Love you , Nicky

I wish I had the right words to say, but no words can express the loss of your husband. Mary Ryan
