To the Foree Family,
Truly our hearts ached when we heard the news about Deacon Jack. Eric and I both shared that he was an influential person in our lives, and we are better having known him.
Hopefully, the words that so often repeated, "Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal" bring some comfort to you. We pray that God's grace & love sustain you in the days ahead; and that your fond memories of Bro' Jack hug you tightly each passing day.
We love you.

Dear Daisy and Family -
What a shock to see that our friend, Jack, had passed on and was now among the angels above. Jack was a true friend; a dedicated husband; doting father; excellent teacher, and a committed Christian. He served where he was needed, and many times helped without allowing anyone to know. A truly humble man.

I was fortunate to be on the instructional staff, with Jack, at Highland Middle School. We were two of the "olde guard!" We also knew when it was time to "hang it up!" Jack has "made it home," while I await my time.

Please forgive our absence at tomorrow's services. I have lost a leg, and have heart problems which limit my activity. Wanda is suffering from Alzheimer's disease, and is easily confused and is having problems being around people in groups. Our prayers, however, will be offered as we celebrate Jack's victory and our loss of one whom we loved.

God Bless You -

Our Prayers and sympathy goes out to the entire Foree family. We thank God for Dr. Deacon Jack for given a husband (Min. Blakey Sr.) and wife (Evang.

As of right now, one of our business is a janitorial service as well, so thank you again Dr. Decon Jack for your wisdom and friendship over 40 years.
To the Foree's family:
Remember always that "Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal"..Keep looking to the hills where your total help will truly come from. God loves you and so do we.
