May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

My condolences to the entire Blagg family, especially to those I grew up with, Fred and Louise, after hearing of Jack's passing. My sister, Linda Sears notified me.
My most memorable memory of Jack was his flying over our property in Stanfield hopping over the barbed wire fences in pursuit of a coyote.

We can get strength from the fact that all who knew Jack will surely miss him.

Wille, My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Weeping last for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
To me Jack always had a smile on his face and always extended his hand in friendship. He will be sorely missed, but you can rejoice knowing that he is with his heavenly FATHER.
Please know that you and your family are in my prayers.
I pray GOD'S peace and comfort over you and your family.
Blessings,
