I was truly saddened to hear of Jack's passing and I want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Jack was a very special person to me as we worked together in the Guard as Administrative Supply Technicians. Jack was a very bubbly person, always had a smile and a joke to tell. I will always remember his laugh, no one laughed like he did as his whole body would shake. He was a true joy and one who I considered my friend! May the Spirit of the Lord comfort your hearts through this difficult time.
