  • Jake was far more than a cousin to our Dad he was a dear friend. Our family enjoyed many years of hospitality fun and food at the Logan house. Our deepest sympathy to Jill and her family and Hank and his family and all the cousins.

  • Dear Jill and all Jake’s family,

    Julie told me of Jake’s death. What I know most about him is how much he loved you, his family.

    I will be praying for you as you prepare for the wake and funeral Mass for your father, grandfather, brother, cousin and friend.

  • I’ve been so saddened to hear the news of Johnny’s passing. He frequented Fratells Pastry Shop in weymouth almost every other day to get a sweet treat. Any chance I had to serve him I always would and we would chat all the time. He was so kind and would always talk highly about his family and his grandkids. Although I didn’t know him long, I’m grateful I got to know a wonderful man, one who always came in and put a smile on my face. My heart breaks knowing I won’t see you for another blueberry muffin with no sugar. May you rest in peace Johnny, and to his family I am so sorry for your tremendous loss and I am sending you my condolences and prayers during this extremely difficult time.❤️🙏🏼

  • Went to mass everyday with Jack. Spent time with him at the cemetery everyday Great guy. I’ll miss him
