May God bless Jack as he is surely sitting at the right side of our Lord. He was such a good man and was always a pleasure to be around. I know his family will miss him greatly and those of us who had the pleasure to know him will as well. Good man - great life!

The photo of your father shows what a happy person he was. My parents enjoyed their friendship with both of your parents many years ago. I am so glad that I was fortunate to know him many years later. My sympathy is with you, but just remember what wonderful times you shared together. Annabelle Ratliff Allison Allen

He did it 'HIS WAY.' Thoughts and prayers to you. A real hole in your souls....and what a blessing that you all were so close!!

Heidi and Barbie~ Your dad lived life at 2 speeds... Fast and Full bore! What an inspiration to living life to the fullest I have ever witnessed on this Earth. I lost a loved one of equal zeal 4 years ago April, and am still tender... My prayer is that your hearts mend in a rapid manner...and they will. Let your wonderful families know I've got them all close to my heart.

Barbara & Heidi, your dad was such a wonderful man. It was so nice to get aquainted with him again when he came to visit our dad. Only true friends, such as your dad, would give their time to visit the way he did. He will truly be missed here but, know he is in the hands of God. Dru
