    My father-in-law was an ordinary man who lived a great, ordinary life....but to my sons, Jonathan and Peter (his grandsons), and me...he was extraordinary. I am so thankful to have have been able to spend some time with Jack in early March. He was doing so well, and his continued spirit and quick wit inspired me. He will be truly missed, but we have wonderful memories of times spent together both in Wisconsin and Florida! Semper Fi!
