To the Walsh family and especially Aunt Mary my deepest sympathy and prayers are with you during this time. My memories of Uncle Jack are happy ones. I remember his humor and his play acting of being the scary adult while trying to hold back his laughter. Some of my happiest memories of childhood is getting to go to Uncle Jack and Aunt Marys house. The love he showed was and always will be with me and I could not of asked for a better Uncle. Uncle Jack you will be greatly missed by all. I know Uncle Jack will be welcome by my mom and look over us.
