Jack, I am going to miss you old buddy.  We never talked much since graduation except at our 45th reunion.  I never told you how much I appreciated having you in my life - I did you know.  You loved life so much, you were always just busting out with energy.  You never knew the meaning of can't.  Thank you for passing that along to me and the others who knew you.  Rest well, you earned it.
