    I have waited to share my feelings on how much the Schuette family will miss Jack because there was sooo much I wanted to say. He was the best of friends and so much more! He will be missed by many but mostly by Wendy and Missy. I know he is looking down and he is so proud of you two. You have been towers of strength for Jack and each other. Jack, you are no longer hurting and for that we are grateful. You have left indelible memories in our hearts. We will miss you smiles and your teasing. We love you.
