    Dear Betty and family.... was saddened to see that Jack had passed away. I still have memories of him coaching me in little league baseball. Practically knew him all my life. Very kind and caring, but could be a mean SOB we need be. He was a wonderful father-in-law to have and happy to say he was a part of my life. God Bless

    I worked with Mr Cunningham in physical therapy several times. He always had a smile and was such a positive person. We all enjoyed his company.

    Dear Betty and family, Jack set the standard for husbands, fathers, Grand fathers, and friends. Jack was all of these, he fiercely loved you all and in turn we loved him, may God comfort you all. Seeing Jack on Sunday, he was at peace and happy it was so good to see him. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. We love you all so much.
