Jack Reed Moon

If there ever was a man who enjoyed eating, it was Jack Reed Moon. TLMM's father Jack passed away last Friday from cancer. We enjoyed so many amazing meals together, I wouldn't know where to begin. I picked one post I especially like because as I wrote it, I was looking forward to a visit from him and Marilyn. Click here. The first time I met Jack, we shared a meal at a Japanese restaurant in Pittsburgh and he informed me that I wouldn't like France very much because the portions are very small. We laughed! He had me pegged. One of the best meals I have ever had was at their apartment - click here. One year, we celebrated his birthday at Joe's Stone Crabs- see here. Jack read ...and the eggs, and even commented now and again.

Until a couple of weeks ago, Jack was eating everything you could fit on his plate. After his move to Florida in 2008, Jack had the chance to try Cuban food- he especially liked Cuban sandwiches. He was always game to go out to a new restaurant, and it was easy for him to find something to try. He was adventurous with food and instilled that curiosity in his children. We will miss Jack for so many different reasons, I will especially miss my dining companion...and the eggs.

I haven't been to the blog in a while but wanted to send my condolences once again. This post was a nice tribute to Beth's father.
