We hope that your memories will sustain you over the next while. We will be thinking of you.

  • I have many great memories of Uncle Jack. From the caboose in his yard, to the country hoe downs. Stealing sips of drinks and smoking as a young teenager and him catching me. Also he caught me riding a small motorbike that should not have been driven by ANYBODY as it might have ignited into flames. He never batted an eyelash, but did roll his eyes at me when I deserved it. Uncle Jack, RIP. - Posted by: kelly yestrau (nephew of uncle jack) on: Jun 08, 2012
