So Saddened

“Angela, Erin and Steph I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Jack's passing. I have so many wonderful memories of Jack from our soccer years with Jill and Steph. Jack was always ready with a smile and a joke and I really enjoyed all the times we all shared together. I am praying for all of you and Jack's mother that God will grant you comfort and peace and that your memories will keep you strong until you meet him again. God bless you.”
