We miss you a lot. Thirty three years went by very quickly. Can you believe that Mom is turning 90 this year?

My beloved son,
12 Sep 2006
Dearest Jack... Today is Sept. 12, 2006 ... the day after our nation recalled the sad events of 9-11 five years ago. Tragedy causes us all to stop and think and hopefully pray to be better people in this world. I still miss you a lot as you were one of the finest persons I was privileged to know ... and I wonder what you would have thought about the world today.
I miss the chance to share with you the good memories of our growing-up years: Lake Cavanaugh, Alonzo!, and the Queen Anne years.
Now both Mom and Dad are with you in heaven ... and Grandma too. Say "Hi" to everyone!!!!
Love from your Sister,
Kathy O'Brien Dennis
Hardly a day passes that I don't think about what happened 34 years ago. What a loss for all of us. You enjoyed life so much.
Your brother Frank
