Our love goes to all the Jack family at this time. We had the privilege to live across the street from Doris & Bob for over 13 years. Our porch visits, shared treats and friendship are cherished memories. Our fond memories of watching regular (nearly daily) visits from each of their kids enriched our lives. We strive to love our children in a way that they will support us in our older years much like the Jack children did. Thank you for being some of the sweetest neighbors and friends life could give.
