    Doug, Jeff and family, I was sorry to read about Jack’s passing. I know that he was so close to both of you and that your kids were such a joy in his life.i remember Jack holding Jacob when he was just born and the big smile on his face.
    So many fond memories of when we would be together and the fun that we had. I think of Speedy and Dorothy and the fond memories that i have of them and my grandparents Gene and Julia. Life goes too fast! Know that we are thinking of each of you.
    Love, Leslie and family

    Jeff and Doug,

    You and your families have my husband Arthur’s and my deep sympathy.

    Until I moved from Kansas City in 1965, Jack was very much a part of my life – a favorite cousin – and I have continued to be very fond of him all these years. I have fun memories of Jack from my childhood, warm memories of him in my adulthood, and I shall remember him always.

    May Jack’s soul rest in peace.

    Working for JFS (Jewish Family Services) I and another volunteer Harold Schlozman, got the chance to meet Jack at the Delmar Gardens facility. He was a wonderful person to talk to and see the growth of K.C. thru his eyes. He was wonderful to talk to, and we are saddened to learn of his passing. May god comfort his family, and may there be Shalom.
