Pat, Jayne, John, Karin and families, we were saddened to read about Jack's passing. Our condolences, prayers and thoughts are with you at this very sorrowful time. Jack and I had many "fun" times as substitute teachers at NRHS! He truly loved his family and never missed an opportunity to share his pride of their accomplishments. The wonderful memories that you all shared are treasures. Hope that they provide some comfort. Fondly, Betsy and John Dowling
