    I want to express my deepest condolences and sympathies to Jackie Sue, Judy, Greg, Carolyn, the Young family, and all of those people who’s hearts Jack undoubtably touched. Never have I known another man to embody so humbly, the virtues which we all should aspire to uphold. I hold dear and reflect often upon, the cherished memories which I’ve had the absolute privilege of making with this soft-spoken legend of a man, and will forever continue to do so. I pray that all who Loved him may do the same, and find Peace; till we too, return home.
