“My sincere sympathy, Judy, for your loss. I remember Jack well from school at Rossie and also from church at Bethlehem. He sometimes picked me up on his way to choir practice and Luther League there. He was a very nice person. It's a difficult loss, but rely on the Lord and the many happy memories that you had with him and your family and friends.”
