    Dear Family of Jack..You are in our hearts and prayers this morning, as you celebrate the life of your dad, grandaddy, grt.grandaddy & brother. May It be a homegoing celebration. Jack was a true southern Christian gentleman. He loved His Lord, his family, his country, his church and friends. He was a devoted husband.
    We felt blessed to call him our friend & grateful for our daughter to be a part of his family. We were always treated as family, when we were in his home. May you find comfort & peace in all the precious memories he leaves you with. Ps.116:15, Rev.14:13…In His love……Phyllis & Bill Benson….2nd.Cor.1:3-4

    My sister, Lillian, was married to Jack’s brother, Charles. I am sorry to see another friend leave us but I know his family in Heaven is rejoicing as we all will one day with them. May each family member feel the comfort and peace that only God can give at a time like this. Praying for you.

    May our gracious Lord comfort you all as you grieve the loss of this wonderful father and grandfather. We enjoyed getting to know Jack over the years, whether at a family event with Bryan and Mindy, or just running into him around town. He always had a friendly smile and took the time to make conversation and brighten the day with his positive upbeat attitude toward life, even though he has known his share of sorrows in this life. As he rejoices in heaven, we rejoice with you here on earth that he made his mark here in a way that Jesus can say “Well done, good and faithful servant”. (Matthew 25:23)
