|A picture from Jack's album. I do not know the ages in this picture.
Just a little while ago, He walked our streets. And was a part of all we see. And know. No actor then, with "sides" to learn
But learning Life; By Lessons hard and slow.
Many's the time we saw him, freckled face and roguish grin, Whistling a well known tune in minor key; Ambition to perform on lighted stage,
A cherished dream...a secret deep within. A dream that sometime, someway, he might be, A credit to his town and to his name.
And bring to both of them, for all the world to see, A modest but hard-earned and deserving fame.
Eleanore Bailey Johnson.
