    Jean, I am praying God will be near you and your family, and you will know his comfort and peace. Jack was a godly man, and I am forever grateful for his influence in my life. I remember fondly serving with him in Juvenile Detention, leading a Bible study for the detainees. Without his invitation to join him I would not be the Juvenile Probation Officer I am still today. Thank your for sharing him with me and the detainees on those Friday nights. God’s providence, and Jack’s obedience to his Lord, have made a huge difference in my life.
    Love in Christ,
    Gary, and Ellie

    Jean, I am so sorry for your loss. I am praying you will know God’s comfort and peace at this time. Thank your for sharing Jack with others. I will be eternally grateful for his influence in my life as a young man. I remember fondly going to Juvenile Detention with Jack to hold Bible studies for the detainees on Friday nights. I would not have celebrated 33 years at the Juvenile Court without God’s merciful providence and Jack’s love and obedience to his Savior. Thank you again for sharing your husband with me during those early years.
    Love in Jesus,
    Gary, and Ellie
