John and his family were neighbors at first. He and Jackie really were great with kids and took to my three boys right away. My youngest Joe was only about three and would leave the house to go next door and hang out. He loved John. They were so nice to the boys. Joe was an eater. Always happy to have food. They used to tease me about him always being hungry. We came to really like each other and I love their kids and grandkids. It was fun living by die hard Cowboys fans it made the season interesting. A kind, caring, family man who’s wife and kids and grandkids were all that mattered to him. That’s what I remember.
