    To The Family, My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Psalms 94:19 says "When anxieties overwhelmed me, you comfort and soothed me. Verse.22 “But Jehovah will become a secure refuge for me. My God is my rock of refuge". May Jesus promise of the resurrection hope quoted at John 5:28-29 sustain you and comfort you during this difficult time and in the days ahead.

    Jack stood by us in February when we tragically lost our dear son and grandson, Scott, Jr. He was a man of honor and compassion. May God bless his family and friends during this time of loss and grief.
