Jack was a good friend to my parents, Bill and June Boulineau. He was always at my Dad’s side lending him a helping hand and would take whatever my dad dished out! Jack was so very helpful and kind! After my parents passed away, Jack still enjoyed coning out to their place and picking Apples from my Dad’s apple trees to feed the deer. I Will miss him. My sympathy and thoughts to his family during this time.

having spent the last 67 weeks meeting with Jack once a week for only an hour i felt close to Jack because of his strong faith that strengthened my faith every time we met, his confidence in his Lord who went to the cross so that all who believe in Him will live for eternity! I know where Jack is right now,he is along side of his savior and mine. I thank God every morning that i got to know Jack and will truly miss our thursday morning visits ,Rest in piece ,Brother until we meet again!
