Deepest condolences to Jack’s family and friends. I am so sorry I will not be home in time to pay respects. I fondly recall meeting Jack when he saved my cat’s life when he found her wedged in between the branches of a tree and brought her to the animal hospital. That is how I met our backyard neighbor! Then we met again at Cheshire Pizza and he always had a smile on his face! He was a wonderful man and always enjoyed his conversations. Thoughts and prayers are with you all, from your backyard neighbors, the Marinaro’s.....
