Dear Alexander Family Love to All, I'm so sorry to read of Jack's passing. It has been a few yrs. since I saw him at the donut shop in McKinney. He was always so handsome & looked just like my great Uncle Claude. Jack & my Dad, Hubert Alexander, were first cousins. Lonita Alexander Rains, November 2, 2007 Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. We have great memories of Papa Jack. Wayne/Mary Flohr, November 1, 2007
