    My sincerest condolences to the family. I have only fantastic memories of Jack Junior. He was "Mr. Music". A new song! May his music play forever.

    Mr. Jack was a huge personality with a ready smile. When we scheduled our annual Bazaar at Antioch he always approached me before hand and requested that I set aside some canned tomatoes for him. He always made sure to be at the bazaar for his biscuit and tomatoes. He always donated more than the purchase price with a smile. Prayers are with his family.
