I am so sorry to hear of Jack's passing. I reconnected with Jack when Bill and I were organizing the BCS 50th reunion. I talked to him often. He grew up with my late husband, Paul, and they spent lots of time together as friends with other kids on Cumberland Head such as Casey, Joannie, Susie, Danny and others. I'm truly share your grief. I am sending heartfelt condolences to the many members of the Carter family and Jack's many friends. You are in my prayers.
