I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Jack's passing. He was a great guy who loved everyone. I always enjoyed running into him and Katie at Maverick or Wal-Mart. It was always a pleasure to see them. I have fond memories of them when we would have family reunions years ago over by Witt. I'll be praying for the whole family to have peace and comfort in the coming days. Love to all :)

So sorry to hear of Uncle Jacks passing. He was always so full of life! Always had a smile on his face and trying endlessly to put a smile on others' faces. I was thinking about Grandma Dude and Aunt Mary too. Those Lynch's did something right! They all were the most kind and giving people. He had a beautiful soul that will surely carry on :) Praying for peace within for all of you.
