    Among many Jack leaves to cherish his memories his dear sister, Cheryl Baker whom by means allowed me to meet such a wonderful man. It was a pleasure to have met Jack during his life. He was an inspiration to his family and personally inspired me the first time I met him. Prayerfully, Bertha Gonzales
