    Dear Mary, Dan & Families,
    I was very saddened to see Jack’s recent death notice in the Plain Dealer.
    In spite of the the fact that Jack was a year behind me at St. Al’s and attended different high schools, we were, and always remained close friends. I remember how proud I was of him when he became a pharmacist. Unfortunately, we lost touch when Jack moved away to Arizona. There was no finer person than your brother Jack. I also have very fond memories of both of your parents.
    May Jack, your brother Bob, and your parents rest in eternal peace.
    Michael E. Mullin, Lakewood, Ohio

  5. Sorry to hear the news. Prayers and condolences to the family. I was a classmate of John’s at Ignatius. For many years I looked forward to speaking with him during the Phonothon fund raising calls to our classmates. I lost contact with him after he retired, but always hoped to see him at one of our class reunions. Tom Hayden, Lakewood, OH
