    To the Rudyk family,
    Jack was a wonderful person. I am so lucky to have known him and had him help me as a young coach. He was very often my saving grace in the dugout. Brady and Mikie, I am so sorry for your loss. Jack was such an important person in my development as a coach. It was absolutely wonderful to get to know him.
