    So sorry for your lost but thrilled to know Jack’s difficult journey is over! Les & I will be at the services-Jack was such a special guy! Last time I saw him was when Angel & I took you two out for supper and you told us he was not eating-he ate almost everything! Still makes me chuckle-like to think it was for our benefit but suspect he was showing all three of us up!

    God be with all of you. Jack was a swell fellow. A cousin from down Kansas way who moved up to our area…. I can still hear his laugh and his greetings. When I think Of Jack and Mae I thing of the fun times we all had. kids were little and played together and Jack and Mae and Paul and I played cards and talked and laughed together.

    The May & Jack where one of the first families I meet when moving to Falls City. Jack helped with the youth group that all 4 of my children attended.
    Not a Sunday went by without Mr Jack talking to us or giving me my Sunday hug. He will be GREATLY missed. As Christians we know we’ll be together again. So yes I’ll miss him like so many others, but what a wonderful day we have to look forward to.
    I LOVE you May and family! THANK YOU for sharing him with so many people. ❤

    Dear May & Family,

    We are sorry that we couldn’t make it to the funeral today! The above picture is just the way we remember Jack! He was always smiling and laughing and joking with us! He always should so much love and attention to the both of us and to our children! We still have the quilt rack he made for us 41 years ago for our wedding!
    We can only imagine how difficult your loss is! But, how thankful we are that Jack knew Jesus Christ as his Savior and we will spend eternity with him in Heaven! Our love to you all! Praying for you!
