To Jack's family, It was easy to enjoy, love, and appreciate Jack. After meeting him for the first time, I was always eager to see him again. He was couragous to admit his needs and shortcomings. He was humble. He so much wanted to know the reality of salvation and eternal life. I know he has it now. I am reminded of the truth from scripture "faith will become sight". Today Jack sees with his eyes and experiences all the grace of God and the wonders of Heaven. My prayers are with you for the days ahead. God will be with you.
