At the end of the movie "Saving Private Ryan, Ryan becomes introspective and wonders, was I a good man, was I a good father, did I deserve to be saved. Jack Waters was Private Ryan. He was a good man, a good father and his kindness touched us all. To say he was a good person is an understatement for most people do not rise to Jacks level. If you want to pay Jack your deepest sorrow, emulate him and you will be rewarded and never will you forget him. he will be in you. With much love and sorrow, Maureen and Carmine

I would just like to say how sorry I am to all my Water’s cousins to hear about Jackie. Although we have not seen each other for many many years, I often think about all my cousins. When I picture Jackie all I ever see is his big smile and I hear his laugh. Now I will picture him with uncle Johnny, aunt Jane and his son smiling and laughing. Know you are all in my heart and thoughts and prayers. Brian Mason and family.

Mary Jo and family, Tib and I are so very sorry for your loss. We pray that God watches over all of you and you find peace and comfort in knowing that Jack is now at peace. As I think back to so many years ago when we were children and teenagers and my brothers and I had so many good times with my cousin, “Jackie” and his siblings, I have to smile, because all of those memories are good ones for me. Just to mention a few; Thanksgiving dinner each year, playing button-button on the stairs and Red Rover on Foliage Street, picking cherries, and several vacations together in Conneaut and Pymatuning. Also, riding back and forth to St. Francis College in Jack’s old car that was filled with so many kids we had to sit on each other’s laps in the back seat. From time to time I used to wish that we didn’t always live so far apart as adults. It would have been nice if our children had known each other growing up. I am so glad that my son got to meet Jack and play golf with him and Dan and meet the rest of the family. I hope that I will get to see all of you someday soon. God bless, Patty Gunsallus
