Good memories of times at Uncle Jack's home; especially as a a teenager babysitting Stuart, Kim, and Jason (which seems like another lifetime). Uncle Jack was so kind to Mom during her last years, and she always looked forward to having her "little brother" visit and bringing her candy. Thank you Uncle Jack.
