To the family of Jack and of course including Evelyn, I have very found memories of Jack, growing up next door to him, he knew how to set limits, and, as kids we knew to respect them. Not a bad lesson to learn. Looking back I was always glad to know that they were next door when I got home from school or my after school job … I knew they would help if I needed anything. Just a few (very few) years ago I offered Jack a ride, he was walking to the hospital to met up with Evelyn, Well, I guess Evelyn was in the hospital but not Quincy, I drove him and stayed with him for a while. If was heart warning to see his devotion, even as he struggled to walk … a strong man. Peace.
