It breaks my heart to lose my favorite Uncle Jack. It heals it knowing he is with my Aunt Marlene and she will do what she has done best love and care for him up in heaven. I grew up spending every summer in Colorado at Jack and Marlene's and even after I was grown with my own family I STILL spent vacations and any other excuse to go visit the best home away from home I grew up knowing. My sister and I still laugh at so many funny and entertaining memories we had during our summers. We still love to yell "JACK!!" as only our Aunt could and then bellow "MARLENE!!!" as our Uncle would always do. I love you greatly and miss you but I know you have been without Marlene too long and she finally came to take you home. I will tell my Uncle Jack stories for the rest of my life to my children and with my siblings and they will never be without the love and laughter I feel for you. I love you Uncle Jack. Love Always Chelle
Thinking of you. The Batt family
