May God have mercy on his soul.

- I had the honor and distinct privilege to visit, pray and give Jack the Eucharist on Tuesday at the cottages in Paris. I could never forget the many stories he shared with Margaret and I. Now he will be able to share and exchange so many more with his Savior. Welcome home!
- May you rest in peace my dear friend John. Thank you for sharing your faith and wisdom with all of us.
- My deepest sympathy to the family of Jack. He was a great guy!
