    I was so sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. I have so many fond memories of him. I hope in the days to come you can remember all the good times you shared with him and all the love he gave you throughout the years. He is not gone. I know he will be watching over you forever. Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
