    We were sad to hear of Mrs. Kesterson's passing. I worked with Jack at the Henderson Correction Center and he was my roomate at the Justice Academy. Also my sparring partner in the self defence classes. I remember them dancing so beautifully and the unit functions. Also visited them several times. Our deep sympathy and prayers to the family.
