I am so sorry to hear of the passing of this great man. I have many wonderful memories of camping trips when I was a kid with Donna, Mamie, and Jack. Lots of Sunday afternoons spent at the roller rink with them and Donna and Kenny Wise. They gave me the opportunity to do things l probably wouldn't have been able to do. I remember quietly listening to my Daddy, Jack, and several neighborhood men sitting in my grandparents' front yard telling their stories of WWll. So sorry for your loss.
