Dearest Mary Jo, Darlene, Suzi and Donnie,

I was heartbroken today to go on facebook and see the obituary for Jack! I can't begin to tell all of you how VERY sorry I was to learn of Jack's passing. He was such a happy, fun-loving guy, at least as I remember him, and Bob enjoyed being around Jack and all his cousins so much. I know all of you are heartbroken as well. Please give my love and condolences to all the family.

All my love,

Love Joyce and Dave Hamblin
