We are greatly saddened by the loss of Jack. He always brought a smile to our face, sometimes when we needed it most. He will be missed by so many people, for the joy and wisdom he gave us. His true love for you, Marguerite, and his wonderful children, was evident in all his visits we shared. May God bless and comfort you in this very difficult time.

Marguerite and family. We were so surprised to hear of Jacks passing, we visited with him at the Coop not long ago and he said he was doing really well and he looked good too. It is with heavy hearts that we send our most sincere condolences. We will truly miss his smiling face and the great conversations we used to have whenever he came to haul our cattle to market. May God bless you all and keep your family ties strong during this time of sorrow and far into the future. THE PRATCH’S
