Peggy and Bobby,

Linda just called to tell me about Jack's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. I'm sure he is up in heaven playing cribbage with dad (Ray Morrison) and talking politics. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
With much, much love.

Your adopted daughter (Linda still says you are my real mom and dad!),
Lori Morrison and family
