Dear Jay: It was with a sad heart that I read of the passing of your sweet Dad. I enjoyed my experience with him when we both worked at the Allen County Courthouse. He was always a kind, courteous, and a gentle man. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time in your life. With love, Shari Ray

So sorry for your loss. Worked with Jack for many years and enjoyed his professional and so very kind manor. He always had a smile on his face when we got together and loved to talk about his family, and hobbies. Gods blessings to all of you.
