  1. Judy Aquino says:

    Marie and family, You have my deepest sympathy. So sorry for your loss. Thinking about you.

  2. David Williamson says:

    I have fond memories of my cousin Jack. I remember as a kid driving around in his convertible, a 1957 Ford Fairlane if I remember right, with Jack in his army uniform. I remember his model train collection and that is why I always chuckle at that model train scene from the movie “A Mighty Wind” . He is also the person who got me interested in stamp collecting, a hobby I set aside a long time ago despite his encouragement. I still have some of the old comic books he gave me when he was cleaning out his childhood stuff from my Aunt Mary’s house. He always remembered your birthday and always a smile on his face and a cheerful word. Rest in peace.
