I just thought that I would honor the memory of Jack Jewell, a close family friend. My family first got to know him and his wife Jane the year I was born in Taif, Saudi Arabia. Later when we lived for a while in the USA, we would often visit their house by the lake and spend every Christmas and Thanksgiving there. They in turn would celebrate our Eids with us. They used to gift me a book every time we met and through them I got introduced to Nancy Drew and a whole lot of other all-American classics. The last time I visited them was 1999 and Jane shared with me her list of keys to a happy marriage that she carries around with her in a pocketbook. Since then we’ve kept in touch through my father and occasional letters. Our friendship was enriching.
