    Our condolences and tender prayers for the loss of your sweet father jack. Meeting and knowing him was one of the joys of my life, the sweetest of men. While it hurts to be human my spiritual side is confident that Jack is now part of that infinite ocean of love and mercy. I know that if he could he would ask those who love him not cry for his loss, but to smile that he happened to us.

    Love, peace and blessings
    James Clark and family

    We remember Jack fondly from when he and Mary were members at Franklin Central Christian Church. He contributed greatly his financial and administrative expertise to our giving and outreach campaigns. Our condolences go out to Christy and Randy and to their families.
