LIFE NOTES

Jack was afflicted with Cerebral Palsy. As with most parents, his were greatly troubled in this regard, and found much solace in the book Angels Unaware by Dale Evans-Rogers. In spite of his affliction, Jack was a lad who loved his family, found joy in interacting with them, and, when not in pain, was heard to laugh joyously much of the time.
