  1. Dear George: I was so sorry to read about Jack’s death. He was obviously a very special man to have been loved by a person as wonderful as you. Though it’s been a few years now since we’ve seen each other, I still have such fond memories of you and what a warm and caring man you always were. And I remember seeing Jack come to PCC with you on occasion. Fifty plus years is a testament to a God-given relationship, the memories of which I pray continue to bring you joy. May God bless you with the peace that passeth all understanding. Love, Elizabeth
