    Dear Diane, Barbara, Glenn, Jack and Tony: When we were growing up, your Dad was the brother I never had. I tried to keep him out of boyish trouble the best I could but it wasn't easy! Of course, I joined him in a lot of the pranks. I loved Jack very much, and it's too bad distance and circumstances kept us separated for so many years. My condolences and very best to all of you. Love, Mary Louise
