My husband talked about Jack quite often, you see he was the one with the CAR going up to Lowell! Tom mentioned him again today, we were out doing an errand and were missing the start of our local baseball game, so we found it on the radio...once again Jscks name came up, according to my husband him and Jacky use to listen to the games driving from Attleboro to Lowell. I have a habit of finding old friends, I'm a great googler but we are so very sorry to hear he has passed away. Your write up was heart felt, we feel very sad. I wish the guys could have talked once again, they probably would have had great laughs! Tom told me Jacky struggles with diabetes, we know it personally ourselves, my dad was a diabetic and our niece, Tom's brothers daughter has had it since she was 8. It's a tough disease for sure. Your family sounds wonderful and we send our sincere love and sorrow for your loss. If anyone wants to write to Tom here is his email, please just send a note to either of us. Much love, Tom and Marilyn Piggott.
