Connie, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family this week. I know how difficult it has been for all of you this past year. Even though, we haven't got to be together at coffee every morning, we have had a lot of good days talking to each other. It's been a good part of my life these past several years, having Jack as my friend. There aren't that many people that I actually talk to and that was something that meant a lot to me. I'm going to miss that. Connie, even though we live in different towns, please know that I would be happy to help you in any way I can. Take care and know that Donna and I keep you close to our hearts.
My thoughts and Prayers are with you, Connie and all the family. May Our Loving Heavenly Father Hold and Comfort you during this terrible time.
I am so sorry to hear about Jack. My thoughts and prayers are with each of your families. May our Heavenly Father place His loving arms around you and give you peace and comfort.
Sorry for. Your loss We were friends in grade school
