I'm at a loss for words right now and am deeply heartbroken. One of the greatest men I have ever known and had the privilege of calling "Dad" gained his angel wings today. If heaven has any barbershop quartets, trust me, Jack's singing with them now. Jack True meant the world to me, and to all who ever knew him. He welcomed Russ as a son when Russ and I married. We'd go to visit him, go on vacations with him, and just loved every minute we were blessed to be around him. My heart breaks for his wife, Rosalie, and for my two children who were blessed to call him Grandpa. We were so blessed by him.
