This was another terrible notification I received this morning when I opened my email.  I remembered Jack from our days at KHS and he was always a faithful attendee at our Class Reunion Friday evening gatherings.  He knew so many folks and we had alot of fun during those events.  I know his family will surely miss him as he left so suddenly.  Prayers for his family and friends.  Rest In Peace dear Warrior.
