    Dear Anna and family
    I am very sad to hear of Jack’s passing. We will miss him at Heritage Park. I am thankful that I had the chance to meet him and appreciate so much his help with the Strathmore Standard the last few years, as he volunteered to work on fixing the linotype with Greg and Dave. He was a great help and it was nice to have him in the shop. I know he helped a great deal in his years working as an Interpreter in the site prior to that. He gave a great gift to the park with his time and talents.
    I know you will miss him greatly. My thoughts are with you.
