  1. Betty and family,
    Deepest condolences to all the family on the loss of Jack. He was a good man in every way. He took care of my mother’s plumbing needs for many year, always responding when there was a need. She always held Jack in high regard as did all our family. May the Lord give you all His peace and grace during this time.
