    I took care of Amy through Four Seasons and I will never forget Amy or Jack! They were both very sweet people. Jack took such good care of Amy and was a special man! He was a great cook and always told me about the marvelous meals he was preparing! They were so devoted to each other! Jack was a real inspiration to me and I hope you will accept my sincere condolences. I'm glad they are reunited.

    There are no words to describe what a great friend Jack was to my parents, Dot and Vic Strandbergh. For 16 years, Jack and Dad spent many hours together walking up and down Mountain Valley Drive, keeping the neighborhood safe and exploring the new homes being built at the top of the hill. After Dad passed away, Jack called Mom daily to make sure she was okay -- in fact, he would say, ìIím still here, are you still there?î Jack was Momís first responder and came to her rescue countless times during the past three years. Jack was a great help to Mom after her stroke in February, running many errands for her while she recovered. We always knew that Jack had a heart of gold and we will miss him a great deal. Well Jack, ìWeíre still here and we wish you were still there.î We know the whole neighborhood would agree with us. You are a special man and will never be forgotten.
