Mrs. Linda, please know that Tiffany and I are so sorry for your loss. It was always neat to see how you still had Mr. Jack's eye, and also how you could wrangle him in, if necessary. But I did love how he always had a joke to cut and I can hear him snickering now.

Mark, Andrea, and Elisha - I am so sorry guys, and I want you to know that Mr. Jack was and will continue to be one of my heroes. He truly impacted me on how to be a man, have fun, and still live for Jesus.

Grant and Derrick. I know what it is to lose a Giant in your life. I am so sorry guys, your Popa was and will continue to be a Giant. Please know we are praying and love you guys.

Evan and Laurel. Your Grandad was a living legend. I never knew of anything he couldn't do. He was Superman with a beard, and there was never a doubt how much he loved you guys.

While we can't attend today and give you the hugs we want to...please know that we have had a heavy heart since Friday. Mr. Jack will truly be missed. We love yall and will be praying for each of you.
- Jason and Tiffany Blankenship
