Saundra, Andrea and family, Amy and family, Jill and family, Dick, Linda and Dick and family:
We are heartsick to lose another famous “donkey man” and know how difficult it is to say good bye to your loved one. I am sorry that we are unable to be in Ohio at this time, but know that our thoughts and prayers are with you through this life transition. I will remember the many fun and loving family picnics that the Barthen’s and Spicer’s enjoyed together while growing up in my wonderful home state of Ohio. As the “first Jill” in our extended family, I have always felt a special bond with Jack! That bond will continue . . . .
Peace to all of you.
Cousin Jill and husband Dennis
River Falls, Wisconsin
