We were so lucky when you chose us to be your family. You had a blue collar on you when we met you for the first time and until we knew you were Jack, we called you little blue boy. You were such a fun, happy and mischievous puppy. You played hard and loved even harder.
You loved our summers at the lake and your favorite times were spent with the family on the boat with the wind in your face blowing your ears back.
Jack loved fall leaf piles and the winter snow. He played in both til exhausted.
You couldn’t wait to go to work every day and greet customers and make friends at Hyundai - “The House that Jack Built”.
As you grew up you became so regal and distinguished with your grey hair and deep bark. You tolerated and eventually came to love your little sister, Daisy.
Jack; you will forever be in our hearts and we will love you forever.
Rest In Peace,
Gary, Jane, Will, Sydney, Jake and Daisy Rome
