    Caroline and Steve: You have our deepest sympathies for the passing of Jack. I did not know about his passing until about 30 minutes ago and his service is already over. I always enjoyed talking and kidding around with Jack. We had some great memories of bowling together. We will keep all of you in our prayers. Ron and Penny Wells
