We are so sorry to hear of the passing of our dear friend Jack. We had so many great times together in Elk Rapids and our cabin in Engadine Mi. He was a joy to be around and one super deer hunter. Our hearts go out to Joann and the family and may God Bless you all. RIP my dear friend and you will always be in my memories.
