My father was your son, Quentin Lewis Marion Jacks. You passed away when he was nine years old. Your daughter, my beloved Aunt Mary, made sure all of us knew everything about you. She gave me all of the articles about you, your badge, whistle, etc,- everything she saved. She made sure your memory lives on. I, in turn, have made sure my sons know you.
