Dear Ellen, Janet, Marnie,Cathy and families: We returned from vacation this past week to hear the sad news of Jack’s passing. I truly know how difficult it is to lose one’s only brother and wanted you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. I only have to close my eyes to hear Jack’s wonderful laugh filling a room and know that somehow, he and Brian are now having a wonderful reunion. Thinking of you and remembering many happy times together at St. James,

I Just learned of Jack’s passing as we are now living six months at the cottage in Parry Sound. I had just posted a note regarding Mac Carson’s passing yesterday and mentioned the fun we had retreating from Hamilton-Wentworth Regional Council to the cottage for some occasional respite. That fun included Jack, Jim Robb Mac Carson and Reg Whynott. Jack will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to the family.
