    Dear Avilee
    We are very disheartened to hear of Jack’s passing! He was considered a good friend. He was true gentleman and we appreciated his (and your) concern for us to get a place to live and keep our horses. It was also very enjoyable to visit with him and you. If we can be of any help to you at any time – please do not hesitate asking!
    Your friends,
    Jerry & Carol

    He was our neighbor when we first came to Sun City. There’s was no finer gentleman in the world than Jack. He was always in a good mood and was friendly. The world should have and needs more people like Jack. He will be missed and loved forever. Best wishes to the family of Jack-Avilee you are a great lady as well.
    Sincerely, Roger and Elisabeth Kenny

    Dear Avilee,

    It was at least 11 years ago that we met you and Jack through square dancing and also we met three other couples that enjoyed square dancing. We all (10 people) started celebrating our birthdays together plus playing “last card”. Those times together were always so much fun and Jack always gave us a lot of good humor. Jack was a very kind person and we will miss haviing him in our little group. Avilee, you take good care of yourself and if we can help you in anyway don’t hestiate to call.
