Jack was not here by chance but by God’s choosing. His hand formed him and made him the person he was. He compared him to no one else, he was one of a find. He lacked nothing that God’s grace did not give him. God allowed Jack to be here at that time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this generation. Thank you God. Jacks 5 children 19 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren already miss him greatly, as well as many others.
