Mrs. Ruth, Jack will truly be missed by my family. I will never forget the first time he hugged me. I thought I was going to break. He was the strongest man I ever met. I have fond memories of him out in the shed.
You could always hear him sawing from outside Dad & Mom's house.
He was also a trip to play games with. I especially loved the way he called you Ruthie. I miss not seeing him these past three years. I also loved the stories he would tell when he was going to being look after at the home up there. I sure he was always the center of attention.
His exercise stories were so funny. I'm sure he will be the center of
attention up in heaven with my Dad. What a wonderful friendship they
had. Miss them both. All our Love, The Graves Family

My fondest memory of "Uncle Jack" was his rosy cheeks, his laughing smile and the way his eyes seemed to sparkle when he laughed! He was a very wonderful man and a great part of my parents life with his horse Clover during the many many Sunday trail rides! I am sure he is keeping them all laughing up there.
