He was a skilled woodworker and made many wonderful furniture and craft items for his children and grandchildren to treasure. He loved watching his grandchildren in their many different activities. Jack enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and treasured family time. Jack had an addiction to Vintage Farm Toys and loved taking trips to sales to find the next treasure.

The 23rd Psalm

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall
not want. He maketh me to lie
down in green pastures; He leadeth
me beside still waters. He
restoreth my soul; He leadeth me
in the paths of righteousness for
His names sake.
Yea, though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death, I will
fear no evil; for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort
me; Thou preparest a table before
me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou anointest my head with oil,
my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall
follow me all the days of my life;
and I will dwell in the house of the
Lord forever.
