I had the good fortune to be a neighbor of Mr. Jack and Mrs. Martha for many years on Jamesville Drive in Matthews NC until I moved away in June 2018. I missed both of them following my move. My heart aches today for the recent loss of Mr. Jack and Mrs. Martha just a short while ago. Mr. Jack was filled with knowledge and always had an interesting story to tell. He was a delightful man. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time.
