Maxine, I am currently on vacation so will not be able to attend the funeral but wanted to let you know that Jack was my boss for 7 years in the late 70s and I really enjoyed working for him. He always treated me fairly and I have good memories of my time at Bemis and working with him. And then after his retirement we would often run into you two at garage sales and he was always so smiley. My sympathies to you and yours, Paul Hertel

Ruth Schoneman
