    Jack was a gentle soul. We used to live around the corner from each other. We'd stop and shoot the breeze at times when we were both in the yard and later when we ran into each other at local businesses. He was always willing to share his faith with others and loved to speak of his kids. I hope he receives a crown in Heaven.
