    Jack gave me my first motorcycle…that little Honda 50. I loved that little thing! The Parris family is ripe with such boisterous characters. And Jack never disappointed. Always looked forward to family gatherings and listen to his crazy stories. He had such a thundering voice, definitely stuck out in a crowd. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Very sad news indeed.
