RIP Jack

I don't usually post photos of people... but Jack was special. He was John's employer many years ago, and John's friend ever since. The first time I met him was when I came to spend time with John before we were married - we went to dinner with Jack and Rhona so he could vet me as a suitable bride! lol (not really, John wanted me to meet him as a family friend...)

When we were married there was no question in his mind that he and his wife Rhona would come to our wedding. They were our only guests except for a friend John works with who offered to take photos for us (that was very sweet of him too, and he did a nice job!). Jack's health was never good, and he has been extremely ill for the last three years from the cumulative consequences of many minor strokes. He passed away on Sunday morning, so today I post our wedding photo and remember a good friend I would have liked to have known better.

Jack was Jewish by birth but an atheist in long practice, so he wouldn't want prayers for his soul - but I'm pretty sure that he's up there at the pearly gates now giving St Peter a good talking to. He always liked a good argument. RIP Jack.
