Dear Linda, Brian, and Karen.

After all Jack has been through in the past year+, we know in our minds that since his loving heart wasn't strong enough for the 'fix' this is the outcome he would have wanted. We are praying for all of our hearts to find comfort in this fact, be able to enjoy our memories of Jack without sadness, and trust he is with all of our family who have already left us. Peace to you all.
