Jack and Sandra were our friends and co-workers in the Air Force chapel ministry at Keesler AFB, Biloxi, Mississippi. He was so thoughtful and encouraging to me when my wife died in 2009. I pray for God's comfort and strength in the lives of each of his family who will miss him in the days ahead. - Eldon Smith, Louisville, KY.
