Ohhhh Jeane and your Family. Jeane you know I would have been there if I had known about this. Tonight, Thursday, is the first time I have turned on my computer, and now I see this sad news for us left. Not sad for Jack, because he transitioned to his Heavenly Home. He is with Jesus! I have been sick, in the hospital Jeane. But I am at home now doing real good, much better. While I was there, a few days before Jack, my beloved Larry died Jeane. So they are both in Heaven now. Y'all, my friends, will never be forgotten. Our time at Mt Carmel. Y'all never missed a funeral for anyone you knew. All of your great food that you have taken to people over the years. You and Jack, always together. So glad you have your Family to help you through these difficult times coming up. You have all your fond memories. You and I have so many scriptures to comfort us don't we Jeane. Jeremiah 29:ll and Zephaniah 3:17 Duet. 33:27 He is our eternal refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms. Phillippians 4:13 God gives us the strength we need. Love you Jeane, Linda Parker

Jean and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. He was so good to me (and Ashleigh) during the three years I rented the little house. He came to check on me countless times, but especially while I had little mouse traps out because he knew I couldn’t handle that task! He laughed at me and called me a little scaredy cat. He was right!!! On one of his visits, I was able to get him to try kale chips I had made. He said they tasted as bad as they smelled! Those are just two of the funny moments with Jack. There were many more. I often think of you both and how kind you were to us. I will forever be grateful for your kindness.
I know Jack will be missed. He was such a fine Christian gentleman. My prayers go out to you all.

Jean and family, I just learned of Jack’s death and I am so sorry for your loss. Jack was a fine gentleman who would help anyone in any way he could. I found him to be a kind and generous person and was proud to his neighbor. I called several times to check on you and got no answer and I didn’t know how to get in touch with you. Hold all the good memories of your life together in your heart and know that you have a loving guardian angel watching over you.

To Jack’s wonderful Family I send to you my love & prayers. I cherished the friendship that I have with Jean , Beth & the rest of this beautiful family . We went to Brownbridge Christian Church together & became instant friends in this church family . My husband Earl passed on Aug 6,2017. Jack & Jean continued to check on me . Jean had a recipe for her chicken soup that I loved , with her hands of love she continued to make it for me .
I know that Jack earned his Heavenly Wings & his in the arms of Jesus. God Bless this Family as they go through the process of living on earth without Jack.

Mr. Veasey was such a “mentor ”of young men. I cannot tell how many times I spent the night, upstairs, at the “ Veasey estate, listening and learning from Mr. Veasey. As you might imagine, not all of us — Kelly A; Jones Merriman; Van M; Michael B; many others — always had good intentions when spending the night. Many a time we went down the stairs to sneak out only to face Mr. Veasey at one of the doors! We’d stay in the camper in the backyard with plans to slip away to various friends living in Wishing Wells. Somehow, before we could escape, there was Mr. Veasey! Caught us again! Once, Glenn had his eyes on a black hot-rod car. Somehow, he came up with the $500 to buy the car and drove it to the Veasey estate for all to see. Glenn fired it up, smoke everywhere , and belts a flying! Someone asked Mr. Veasey what he thought of this purchase. He dead -panned, “I don’t think Glen got much automobile!”

Mr. Veasey will continue to live in the hearts of so many. He was a parent; a coach; a friend; a father; a mentor. A combination of crack the whip and being a great guy around young men, I think we can all agree that God, in seeing Mr. Veasey, having now arrived in that “mansion in the heavens, “ knows that He sure got some automobile!”
