My dad Ed Cleary has spoken often through the years of his "foxhole buddy" Jack Ginnevan, and has told numerous stories of their early days. They kept in touch through the years. Dad actually called Jack a few times in the past month, and sent a note just yesterday. Fearing the worst, I decided to do a quiet search. I know dad will be devastated at the loss of his old friend. Dad is currently living with me (daughter) in Madison, GA. If any of the family would like to chat with dad, or would be willing to share an address (email or otherwise), I know dad would want to contact you. My condolences to all of you.

Life lost is a loss. May you find comfort in happy memories and in knowing that God"s purpose for all was to live happy trouble free lives forever. He promises that the meek will inherit the earth and not one of his promises has failed.. Genesis 1:31, Psalms 37:11 and Joshua 21:45
