We had a great working relationship long hauls out of town where you can really get to know a person. Honesty and perfection that was the man I knew. Very sorry to hear about
    Jack God be with you and your family.

    Vanda & family,
    We are so sorry for everyone’s loss. Our hearts and minds are with all of you as you journey to wholeness. My memories of Jack are good. I remember his consideration of others his deep love and devotion to family. There are no words one could say which would heal the emptiness left by the loss of such a fine man.
    One of the wisest men in history, when he lost everything, said:
    “Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
    naked I’ll return to the womb of the earth.
    God gives, God takes.
    God’s name be ever blessed.” Job 1:21
    We lift you all in our prayers, Jacobus, Isbelia and Isabella
