    Dear Pat and Family, It is with such a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Jack. His memory will live on for so many of us. Recently to have had a chance to visit with him and recall so much of our childhood. Those years in Randolph, KS were the best and I know Jackie and his parents influenced many of the cousins to become the adults we are today. May God wrap his loving arms around you and give comfort.

    We are so sorry to hear of Jack’s passing….this just makes me sad. I’m glad I was able to visit with him last year when I visited Kansas. Being the banker we always exchanged a few jokes about his job as a bank examiner. I know he is sharing great stories with those in heaven who went before him. Our condolences to the family…..

    So incredibly sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. You both have been the kindest of neighbors to Stephanie and I, and Stephanie’s family for years before that. I’ll never forget Jack helping Stephanie get our dog in the car when she needed to rush him to the vet one day when I was at work. I was so appreciative when Stephanie told me how Jack was out in the driveway and rushed over to help. If there is anything we can do please don’t hesitate to knock on our door.
    Ryan & Stephanie
