Uncle Jackie was such a gentle, kind, and loving man, with that streak of practical joker we all loved.
Unfortunately it’s been way too many years since I have seen Uncle Jackie...my fondest memories go way back to his wonderful practical jokes, and tricks when I was a teen, back in the ‘60’s...he always made us laugh, in my mind he is frozen in time during those younger, happier days. My heart goes out to Aunt Millie and the family. Love, Susie
