My sympathy and prayers to you and your family at this time of sorrow. I am sorry that I won't be able to attend the funeral today. I have been sick with MRSA and have had surgery and do not need to be around anyone at this time. I will be praying for you and the girls and Mr. Jack's family. I never got to know him real well but on the occassions that I did see him, he seemed like a very nice person, I know you will miss him but take comfort in knowing that you will see him again in our heavenly Father's home one day. God bless you and comfort you at this difficult time. I love you all.
