Jack has never been forgotten by his widow, Carol Wypick.
At the request of Carol, her words of appreciation appear here.

“It has been so wonderful to know that people haven’t forgotten Jack. He was absolutely the most wonderful husband. He gave me a lifetime of wonderful memories.”

“My husband, John, has been so understanding and I've been so fortunate to have another fantastic man come into my life.”

“John and I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for the love and kindness that has been extended to us by so many. Thank you and God bless all of you for your love and support.”
