Jack Shields was a heck of a man and lived his life to the fullest. His life was rich in faith, family and friends. He passed away last week and the family asked to plan his wake. Jack was a well loved man and extremely active in our church. This was going to be a party to celebrate a wonderful man and his life.
At each table, I placed a few pictures of Jack from different stages of his life and was sure to sneak in a few of the funny photos.
Jack was crazy about pineapple upside down cake, Cheetos, jelly beans and popcorn so you know it was going to have to make an appearance. Amazingly, the Cheetos disappeared almost as quickly as the shrimp! Here’s the table with decorations before the food was placed.
It was a fitting and fun farewell. I took videos and pictures of all the action which I later make into a dvd for Jack’s wife of 53 years, Jean.
