    I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Jack from Garber Brethren. Jack and Pat were good friends of my parents. He was a gentle, humorous man who seemed to love his Savior, family, and life.

    I loved being neighbors of this family, his daughter was the only girl in the neighborhood but me and was so thankful for this kind, generous family that moved onto our street. I have a lot of fond memories of him. He will be missed.

      Thank you so much for the kind words Kathy, I was grateful that you were in the neighborhood too. Your mom and dad were like second parents to me.
