  1. Sorry to hear of the passing of Jock! He meant a great deal to many people who were fortunate to have grown up with him. No one could ever tell you all about Jock. He had too many qualities and was too involved in so many events that it would be inpossible to put into words. The longer he lived the greater his love of family and friends would grow. Jock will be missed by many… Coke

  2. John,Lou,Mildred,Babe, and families, Sorry to hear of the loss of your brother. All of you were favorites of my Mom and Dad. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Sincerely, Jerry and Carl Hamill
