We are so sorry to hear of Jack's passing. Jack was always a great upbeat person whenever we visited. I always enjoyed talking about with him about Cardinal baseball and pretty much any other sports team playing at the time. Ruthie and he were quite the pair and had such a great life together. I also loved how much Jack's family meant to him---and he was an inspiration to me when it comes to making family THE priority.

We've made a donation in Jack's name to the National Psoriasis Foundation---I know he would love that this small gift might hopefully help to find a cure some day.

We are sorry we can't travel to Waterloo for the services and to be with everyone, but our thoughts and prayers are with Jack (and Ruth) and everyone.
