My deepest sympathy goes out to all of the family! I hadn't seen Uncle Jack since I was 19, but always had great memories of him from all our annual family vacations "down home"! May the dear Lord wrap his strong, loving arms around the family and bring comfort, peace, & strength now and in the days ahead.  Judy Barnes (niece)

We will all miss Jack, each in our own way. The only comfort is to know that he is no longer suffering. But we will see him again someday, I'm sure.

My regards to his family.
