Julie, Scott, Jeff,
I was so sorry to hear of your Dad's death. I have such fond memories of our families getting together for cookouts, growing up and as I got older. Whenever I would bump into Jack somewhere in town, he always had time to stop and visit. The world is a better place because he was in it. I am glad I knew him.
Sending prayers for all of you,
Cathy Baldwin Krumanaker
