I am so sad to hear of Jack's passing. I work at the church and we had a nice visit each time I saw him when he was volunteering in the welcome center. I'm glad I was able to buy him a glass of wine at Carver's one time when we were there at the same time. I Just can't believe he's gone. I will miss him.
