  • Jack was a good friend, when I opened my restaurant for a short time Jack came cook for me, I remember my mom and dad coming into the store and they seen Jack in the kitchen cooking, they both went to the other side of the store started whispering to each other "who's that cooking?" Cher barely introduced him to the whole family when he came to cook in the restaurant, but he got to meet a lot of people while he was there...Thanks Jack. Great memories, rest peacefully Jack and my deepest condolences to my beautiful cousin Cheryl, I love you and I will pray for you, its not gonna be easy without your partner but you still have baby Jack to take care of, he left you a very special gift. - Posted by: Leah Fontaine (Friend) on: May 26, 2018
