  21. Jack was my neighbour for several years in Burnaby. I often talked with him in the building and in Deer Lake Park where I would see him going for a walk. I really liked Jack a lot. He reminded me of my Gramps. A true gentleman and the kind of person I aspire to be. I miss him. To his family, please accept my condolences. You were blessed to have such a wonderful person in your lives.
