Laura,

I still remember some of the stories Jake would tell when I was growing up as your third son constantly being at your house. You and the entire Russo and Filling clan have my deepest sympathies. I wish I could have been there personally to give my sympathies. You are all in my thoughts.

I am very sorry to hear of Jackie's Passing. He and I have been friends our whole life. We used to have a lot of fun in Downtown Speers., and in school. He was one of the most stand up guys I know.
