Rose and family, I am deeply saddened by Jack’s passing. We grew up together, went to school together, played together, prayed together as everyone who happened to be at the Ghaney home close to supper time as Tom never missed the family rosary. I can still see Norah playing the fiddle and Jack step dancing and learning the tunes from his mother. We olayed together for years in the band. So sorry. So many memories. deepest condolences Rose.

Sincere sympathy to Rose and family on Jack’s passing. May he rest in peace. We are sorry we cannot attend the funeral as we are on vacation.
