Jack and Patsy have been my patients for many years. Jack was truly one of the finest people that I knew and treated as a patient and as a friend He faced his illness with such remarkable strength. My wife and I will always remember this humble and gracious man and will help take care of his lovely wife for him from a medical standpoint for many years to come and until we are fortunate enough to join him in Heaven.

I will always remeber when I used to go and clean Jack and Patsy’s home, Jack was always smiling and made me feel so welcome.
After my husband had his accident, and my husband was in the hospital, Patsy was always checking on me, and they would pray for us.
I remember the last time my husband was in the hospital, and I was having a rough time, Jack told Patsy to come and be with me.
The last time I visited Jack in the hospital, before I left, he prayed for us! What a loving, giving, man of God,
