We are sorry for your loss of your Father. We understand through Ellie Ennis that he was a wonderful Husband, Father and Grandfather. Jack is no longer in pain and he is in a far better place than we are. He's watching down on all of you and walking the streets of gold in Heaven with our beloved Savior Jesus Christ and his beloved family that went before he did and he is sending his love.
