"Jack" as I affectionately called him was as good a friend as you could have. The nicest, sweetest guy I ever knew. We had more fun over the years we hung out than anyone I've known. Unfortunately he smoked like a chimney and it got him in the end. It's not fair that such a great friend was taken so early, but he lives on with me every day of my life.  RIP "Jack!"  He's up there "doing the jimmy"  right now making everyone laugh with his infectious humor.
