what a great gentleman; we knew Jack from Golden Hills in Ocala,Florida and his great work at Brothers Keeper of Trinity Catholic Church. Fondest memories of his evenings at Golden Hills surrounded with the Dear Widows who all adored him and enjoyed an evening of dining with him. He really was a perfect gent. And, now he is in heaven free of all pain and most likely surrounded by all the Angels….
My sincere sympathy to the family on the passing of Uncle Jack. He was such a lovely gentleman and I am happy that I had the pleasure of meeting him . A long life so well lived.
Please accept my condolences on the loss of your dear loved one. Take comfort in knowing that our heavenly Creator will soon remove all pain, sorrow, and death forever! May this promise as recorded in Revelation 21:3,4 be of comfort to you as you gain the strength and inner peace to cope with the days ahead. Philippians 4:13.
Please accept my sincere sympathy at the passing of Jack. I became acquainted with this fine gentleman while visiting my Mother at Madonna Manor. Jack was delightful, and I am honored to have known him.
