Condolence & Memory Journal

My relationship with Jack centered around his work as a playwright. Over the course of our collaboration he was generous, open, supportive, and thoughtful. I am grateful for the time he spent working with me, and for the overall contribution he made to his art. "Not as long as you heard my story, not in the fashion of today, but of its time." - from his play, ST. SCOTTY.
