Our condolences to Nancy and the family.

Jack was a great guy. He always had a smile and kind word. Jack and Nancy were "country neighbors" in Lawton and we attended Berean Baptist Church with them.

Nancy and family,
We extend our sympathy, our prayers, and let you know that we still enjoy happy memories of long ago and more recent occasional fellowship with you and Jack. Always cheerful, always pleasant, always faithful to our Lord, his life reflected the saving power of Jesus Christ.

In his love,
Fred and Maxine Carlson
