  • Grace Wilson says:

    To Barb and Family

    It was with sadness that we read of Jack’s passing. He was a wonderful teacher, kind and gentle, so perfect for the little ones that were entrusted to his care. Walking or driving past the house on the corner, I still think of it as “your house” with Jack outside smiling his infectious smile. He brightened many a day. May you find comfort in your faith and memories. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Ken and Grace Wilson
