  2. Aunt Jo and kids our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. It’s very hard to lose a loved one. And Uncle Jack was one of them.

  3. Aunt Jo, Craig, Chris, and Cory and family
    I can not put into words the sympathy I am feeling for your loss. Uncle Jack was one in a million……, a loving and devoted husband, and a father extraordinaire , and a “baby brother” that was adored by his older sisters.
    He was,” THE WHOLE PACKAGE”!
    With that impish grin of his and that sparkle in his eye he’d tell a joke and make us laugh. He will never be gone as long as you hold him in your heart and memory. I know that my Mom was there waiting for him and will keep him safe until you all meet again. MY deepest and most sincere sympathy,

  4. My deepest sympathy Aunt Jo. The Jones family
    Has always been like a second family to me.
    You all are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless you and
    RIP and now you are out of pain Uncle Jack.
