Jack and Marion have been extended family to us via our close friendship with their amazing son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Lorie Lee, our forever friends.

I love how Jack is the chosen name of their youngest son, also awesome like his Grandpa. I love how Scott cared for his grandparents during Covid and beyond, and how much all the Andrews family celebrated that blessing. When Michael was little, he was our son, Andrew’s best friend. I remember when he shared ( In his unique, sincere fashion), how much he loved his grandpa.

Jim is compassion, love and caring on legs. He grew who he is from his family. I feel so grateful to Jack for being the father of this wonderful man.

Lorie Lee is one of my very dearest, almost forever, soul friends. She called Jack, “Dad”. (and I’ve always loved everyone she loves).

The 68 year marriage of Marion and Jack is a hallmark of staying power and constancy. What a role model!

We are holding all of the Andrew’s family in our hearts with prayers for comfort and peace.

We love you.

Marion
The thoughts and prayers of the Prayer Team at FB and your church are with you. I was especially fond of Jack and felt cheated somewhat that I did not know him as a younger man. He radiated warmth and kindness and I always enjoyed sharing Pirate memories and wishes with him on Sunday morning.
Our hearts are full.
