Oh my goodness, how startled I was to see Jack’s name in the obit. I worked with Jack at MHHR . We shared a lot of conversations about several things, mostly about work. I am so sorry. Mrs Yardley I’ve met you a couple of times. Once at a xmas party and more recent at a restaraunt in town. I was waiting for a friend and I talked with you all including your daughter. I really liked Jack, he was a very interesting man and if I had known that he was at the Eliz house I would of visited. God bless all of you and again i am so sorry.
