    My heartfelt sympathies to Farol and family. Jack was a lovely man and loved to visit about all kinds of things. We had many great conversations. We are definitely diminished by his loss but enriched because we were touched by his presence.. Rest easy Jack.

    Our condolences to Farol and Family. You and Jack were the first people that we met when we first moved to Bellevue in 1963. You and Jack took us and our children under your wing. Our friendship has continued for all these years, and we regret and morn his loss. He was the finest of men and we are glad that we knew him.
