    My dear Uncle Vincent was more of a father to me than anyone. He was a very special person and I miss him dearly. My love and prayers go out to all who truly loved him. May the peace of knowing he has reunited with those he loved and missed comfort you. He is dancing in Heaven and in pain no more.

    My husband Bruce worked with Jack at Hammond Transfer and Storage and learned so much how to load properly and pack and load truck etc. Enjoyed all the stories and wished he knew about all the war stories of WW2 Usually Ed Morgan was with them. Once Jack moved back east every summer he would visit both Bruce and Ed we would go out to lunch with both him and Mary and fun stories would be shared. He would call Bruce on the phone and would visit that way usually around the holidays.
    I am unable to go out to Deary but will be thinking of everyone Ted and Patty who Bruce worked with at U of I and Pattie would tell us how Jack was doing. Rest in peace to them and prayers for all the family and also to Tom Cass and family.

    Although I hadn’t seen Mary in many years I have never forgotten what a truly nice lady she was, she was soo much fun to be around, I’ll never forget she took Macel and I to see the Everly Brothers, and many others, at the U of I, and my first street dance at the corner of 3rd and main, Macel, you taught me how to dance:) . Not to be forgotten how she reached out to our dear Mother, Fronna Martin, with friendship. Mother thought the world of her and spoke of her with fondness often. Maybe she and Mom will meet again and have a cup of coffee together.
    It is so hard to loose your parents, especially your Mom, your best friend, your confidant, precious memories to be cherished forever, she will always be with you in your heart. Remember and cherish the good memories.
    We are so sorry for your loss
