Jacks Birthday

Recommended Posts

Today is Jacks Birthday – he would have been 57. The man always looked like he was 15 years younger than his real age. To give you a point of reference he was always told he looked like the owner of Virgin Airlines – who is a very good looking Blonde man. He was also told he looked like the man on the Brawny paper towel wrappers – the one before they recently updated their advertisements.

I sure do miss him today. In honor of his birthday a neighbor and I are going to go to a nice restaurant in Phoenix and celebrate Jacks life. I also bought Jack a Birthday card – actually one that contained a message about missing him – and in it I wrote my own following personal message to him. Here is what I wrote:

My Dear Jack

I spent a good portion of my life –

28 years looking for you.

And when I found you I could never have imagined

that it would last only as long as the search.

Now I try to remember each of those years with you

and what you meant to me.

You will be in my heart and live with me forever.

I will carry you with me.

It will never be the same –

but I will never forget you and what you meant to me –

and what you gave to my life.

I will be a better person for having had you in my life.

I will leave this earth a legacy in your name.

You may have died –

but my love for you never ends.


Happy Birthday

With all my Love

John Boy

Thanks for letting me share this all with each of you. You have made this difficult journey easier to endure.

John – Dusky is my handle on here

Love you Jack – Lots Lots

What a beautiful message to Jack. Your love for Jack will never end.

You have always been such an inspiration to me. Your kind thoughts have not gone unnoticed. I am thinking of you today and hope you have a pleasant evening in memory of Jack's birthday. Also, just wanted you to know, my neice is having her baby today, right now, and he will share Jack's birthday. A nice thing, I believe.

I know you are missing Jack today, and always.
