    Jack was special to me. I can’t express in words how sad I am. Main thing, I am so sorry he couldn’t live a fulfilling life like I know he would have wanted to do. I have been heartbroken all these years thinking about him. We lost a sweetheart. My thoughts and prayers are with Jack's family. RIP, Jack.
