    Dear Mary Jo,
    We extend our deepest sympathy to you and your family. Although we did not have the privilege of knowing Jack for very long, we became very fond of him. He was the rare man of sensitivity and quiet humor, comporting himself with dignity and inner strength. We shall miss him.

  • Mabel G. Brandin says:

    Jack will always be in our memory
    as one of the finest men to come
    to St. Mark, He will be greatly
    missed by all here. Our prayers
    will be with Mary Jo and the sons.
