  1. At the time of your father Claude’s passing, a popular song at the time was “Endless Sleep”. I believe we both talked about the coincidence of those two events when they happened. And while there is probably no similar song to commemorate your passing, you now have found your own ‘endless sleep’ nonetheless. You were the first friend I made when moving into the old neighborhood, and I’ll always remember you. Sleep well Jack, and rest in peace old friend.
