Tonia,
Im so sorry for your loss. Jack was an amazing man. He gave me my first job at Grandview IGA and treated me like family and not just a bratty 16 year old that had never had a job before. I still use things that he taught me in my current job as a store manager.

Love, Ellen Yarborough (Jack)

Toni and family,
Our prayers are with you at this time. It was good to see you and Jack a few weeks ago. Jack was a good friend and a great coworker and boss at Kent’s IGA where I met my husband 47 years ago. We all felt like ‘family’ there and actually looked forward to going to work. The 13 years that I spent there were some of my happiest memories filled with many laughs. Sending hugs and much love to your family.

Toni,Anthony, Rhonda, and Jackie, I am sorry for your loss. From what started as just people at an account that I dealt with, to everyone treating me as family. I loved the days that I got to spend with everyone at the store.
