    My deepest sympathies go out to the entire Schmit family. Jack & Judy have been a staple of my life since high school. I cherished the times at the cabin sitting at the table shooting the s@#* with the two of you. The stories were priceless and the memories will last a life time. Jack was a great man and will be dearly missed at the lake. May he rest in eternal peace!
