Aunt Noreen, Tony and Leila...we are very sorry for your loss! When we were up visiting just 2 weeks ago, Uncle Jack asked Gary if he thought he had made his mark on our family. He most certainly did and was definitely one of the interesting characters that make up our family. Lots of memories and will never forget him. Hugs for you all.

Noreen, Tony and Family, So sorry I couldn't make it to the viewing. Thoughts are with you all at this difficult time. His soul is free now from all the pain. I'm also sorry that Mom wasn't able to get there. She is pretty weak these days.
Love, Beth Gallagher Harris

Noreen and Tony, this is written with my deepest sympathy and love to the both of you! I can only imagine the hurt you must being feeling but relief your must feel also knowing that Jack is not suffering anymore. He was a big part of our lives and someone I always looked up to in all my years growing up (but more so in the past ten to fifteen years) and I loved him so much. I will miss him but I know we will still keep his memory alive between all of us for years to come. I love you both and you will always still be a big part of my family. Let's don't ever lose that closeness, I need to keep that going maybe more then you do. LOVE YOU VERY MUCH
