It's April now, almost 10 months after his death. I still find myself expecting to run into him, and then sadden all over again when the realization hits. I'll probably always miss Jack.
Nearly a month he has been gone now and the pain has not stopped. I still miss him very much and know I'm not the only one. My thoughts and prayers go out to EVERYONE who knew, heard of, loved, and laughed with Jack. He's a very special person and no one will ever be like him again. Love you buddy.
May the long time sun shine upon you
And all love surround you
May the pure light within you
Guide your way on.
Love and light to Jack and all of is loved ones now and always.
Prayers to the Pahle Family at this time.
So saddened to hear of your loss. May our Lord comfort you as you carry on with great memories.
I didn't know Mr. Pahle but my niece did and so on her behalf and for him I light this candle. I'm sorry for the loss of the lives this man touched.
I first met Jack several years ago and was instantly charmed. He always had the biggest smile and the sweet demeanor. My sympathies go out to his entire family and all of his friends. Jack will be sorely missed by everyone who's ever had the pleasure to meet him.
Jann & Dick,
So very sorry to hear about Jack's passing. Hugs, thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family during this difficult time.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.
I am so sorry for your loss. I hope that good friends, wonderful memories and your faith will guide you through this difficult journey.
Jann and Dick,
It has been many years since we saw Jack, but the impish grin of the 7-year old that we remember and were so fond of was clearly still there. Our hearts go out to you. Know that even as a small child, Jack was making a difference in people's lives. We will cherish those memories.
Jann and Dick,
My heart goes out to both of you. So very sorry for your loss. What a cute smile on this guy!
During my time at UNCA I would run into Jack all over town and could always count on him for a laugh and a genuine smile. He will be sorely missed. My thoughts are with you.
Jack was one of my favorite students at AB Tech, and he will be greatly missed by many of us. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I befriended Jack our freshman year at UNCA- he lived across the hallway from us in Founders... He became a very close friend. I've moved away from Asheville and haven't seen him in years, but I will always have fond memories of Jack. I have a notebook of quotes from freshman year- many of them sweet, goofy, uplifting quotes from Jack... He was always there to proof read my late night papers, to grab a bite to eat together, to explore the Gardens In between classes.... to be a good friend. He will be missed by many.
Dick, Jann, Rebecca, Stephen....so saddened to hear about Jack. I know you will all have cracks in your hearts for a long time. May his loving spirit help mend them together. Hugs to all of you.
Dick and Jann: my thoughts are with you during this sad time. My heart goes out to you.
There are very few souls as immediately endearing and inviting as Jack. He has an amazing community around him to cherish and share his life, his unique grace, and the memories of days and nights made infinitely more perfect by his presence. He will be missed.
Neighborhood memories have flooded my thoughts since hearing this news. I hope you are all able to find peace soon.
