    I am very sorry for the loss of your loved one and offer my heartfelt sympathy. It’s never easy to accept the loss of our dear loved ones. May God provide comfort and peace to your family during this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

    My condolences. Jack was my OLL and Prep classmate. Will say a mass for repose of his soul here in Scottsdale on Sunday.

    I just heard about Jack, who I haven’t seen in many years, but he and I grew up together on Hanscom Blvd and went to OLL in the 40s. In fact, I inherited his paper route, as my first ‘full time’ job as a youth. His family was on one end of the block, and mine on the other. I know he’ll be missed by so many others. RIP Jack 🙁

    We want to wish Jack’s family peace and comfort. His loss is real, but his life was very real. May God comfort all who mourn, who are in pain.
