So sorry to read the obituary of your dear loved one. Death is certainly an enemy that take those we love leaving much pain and a void in our hearts. Soon all pain, suffering and death will be no more. (Revelation 21:4)
Richard, Laurie and family,
Our deepest condolences on the loss of your father. He was such a pleasant man and we enjoyed seeing him along with the family at various times of celebration.
The sacrifices he and Mrs. Gylnnis Beach made us all better by getting to know you and your family. The memories of our loved ones live on in our minds and inspire us through the rest of our lives. May Christ hold his soul as he enters the kingdom!
Our very deepest sympathies at this difficult time.

Jack was a great brother-in-law, a good man, and a good friend. His humor and welcoming smile every time we saw him was his trademark. When coming to visit us, he would hide a gift somewhere, and it maybe took a week before we noticed it or ran across it. Tricky. His family is dear to us, and we hope they know we support them through all the loss. We still miss his wife, Gene's sister, Glennis. They are now together in the Lord.
