    I will miss you Jack. Thank you for mentoring Crystal, and for being so nice to me, You never said I talked to much, and I loved your cool, and calm, demeanor. When Crystal had a question, she knew she could go to you. Your, friendship was very deep, and you could always fix things thought unfix able as a house supervisor, at CRN, in the glory days when the nursing staff were ” family”. Miss you, my friend.
