    May God grant you peace.
    I enjoyed playing in the “Country Gospelaires” with Jack in 1970 or so. He gave me his mandolin which I would make available if one of you want it. I spent many Thursday nights practicing music at your house on Hoppenville Road, Green Lane, PA.
    Blessings,
    Dave Benner
