Dear Marilyn, I was so sad to hear of Pastor Jack passing. He was a very special person. When we lost our daughter and grandchildren I do not know how we would have recovered from that had it not been for you and Jack. He always had a twinkle in his eye, and a kind word, a touch, there are no words to express how wonderful he was. Prayers for you and your family...I treasure his stories still today.
