  6. Dear Marilyn & family, The shock I felt when I heard of Jacks’ passing was not what you are going through now but you have many years of wonderful memories to keep you going forward at this difficult time. He was always there when we needed someone for a job, there was no hesitation, just a smile and an “I’ll do it” was what we heard. Thank you Jack for all you did for Dreamview also Marilyn Thank-you for sharing him with all of us. Please take care if yourself and family. Xoxo

    Marilyn, we were so very sad to hear about Jack’s death and please know that our thoughts are with you and the family. He was one of the kindest men ever and a gentleman in every sense of the world. When Jeff & Jamie came to a family reunion years ago, they spoke so highly of Jack, as he took the time to sit down and talk with them both. How lucky the world was to have had Jack in it.

  14. Hello Marilyn: I was very saddened to hear that Jack had passed away, I apologize that we were not able to attend Jack’s memorial as I was away on business in Texas. I was told of Jack’s passing by my wife Barb who works at the clinic were Jack’s Doctor is, and I was very sorry to hear this news. I am sure that Jack will be missed as my father Jim Hill Sr spoke very highly of him.
