I am sincerely sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. Jack was a dear friend when I worked at Luther Acres. We became very close since I was involved in Activities when he lived in Gardenia Court. I really strived to attempt to involve him, I dug deep in coversation with him to find out his interests. I found models for him to paint. We read books about travels, we listened to music. We mostly talked about the love of his life, his wife. I loved to make one on one visits with him to hear his lovely stories of goats, and cats living in the country. Some of the stories he told me shaped and changed my train of thought, forever. He is an inspiration and will never be forgotten. I think of him often, even now it brings me to tears. He will be dearly missed. All my love to your whole family, Sarah Hummer (formerly Luther Acres Activities Assistant 2018)
