Aunt Lois I'm so sorry for your and my loss. Uncle Jack was the kindest man I knew. I loved him so much. I'm so happy I had called and talk to him.
I love you just as much. Maybe after Christmas when all has settled down I can go visit you. Take care i love you.

I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Jack’s passing. He was such a sweet, kind man. I can’t help but smile at the thought of him and my granddaddy, Paul. Together again. Aunt Lois and Chuck, I am thinking of you both and sending my love.
