My brother Danny and I grew up friends with Jack and Andy and had many good times. Jack and Danny got in trouble together while Andy and I chased girls. I really liked Jack even though I hadn’t seen him in years (probably at Andy’s funeral). Amazing there are only 2 of the 13 kids remaining. Loved the Stovall family. RIP old friend
My favorite time with Uncle Jack was him taking us through some thick woods with a trail worn into them. I was scared of snakes even ticks! We ended up at this beautiful fishing hole and stayed there for hours. It was a group of us. I will never forget the scenery either! It was breathtaking. Will miss you bunches. Tell my Momma hello... love you
I will miss you so much. The last phone call you said that when i went to R.I. to live you cried and cried because i always protected you. I will miss our phone calls each week we talked about aches and pains haha. RIP dear Brother LOVE you!!!
I will never forget how you and Jean welcomed my husband and myself into your home when we would come to TN. It was a great joy to see you so happy to see us. We love you and you will be missed by many.
