Dear Idelle, Ryan and Tracey - Jack fought his battle with heart disease and cancer just like he lived his life - with everything he had.  We're going to miss him very, very much, but we're also relieved that he's no longer suffering.  All our love to the three of you.  If you need anything at all, you know how to find us.  xoxo  Karen, John and Mr. Ayers
