    My thoughts and prayers are with Benita, Jill and the entire Hirsekorn family after the passing of such a loving, warm, generous, wonderful man. He was like a second father to me growing up. Rest in peace Jack, your legacy will only continue to grow.

    Dear sweet family, I don\'t know what I am going to do now that I cant look forward to a call every week from my friend Jack. He was such a wonderful man and meant so much to me and my family. He was the unofficial \"official\" Grandpa of my daughter Erin\'s baby due in January. Benita, my love to you. I know that this will be a hard time for you and yours. My love to you all, hugs to everyone, and more love than you will ever know.
