Jack has been in Heaven for more than five years, but if he were still here, we’d be celebrating his eighty-fifth birthday. He loved birthday celebrations, and we were already planning an eightieth birthday party for him when he died a few months before his birthday.
We had the party anyway to remember and celebrate his life and to introduce the book I wrote about him: Jack Stories: Favorite Memories of Jack Jordan Ammann Jr.
You can read about how the book, which includes stories from more than fifty friends and family members, came to be in Remembering Jack with a Book and a Birthday Party. You can read memories and see pictures of the party in Jack Stories: One Year Later.
I still miss Jack every day, but I am so blessed to have shared his life for forty-five years.
