You are in our thoughts and prayers. We love you.
I would like to offer up my condolences to the Jensen family and all others that were affected by Jack's passing. When my mother sent this to me, I remembered immediately who Jack was and the impact he had on my life as a youth. I remember one occasion where we were working with a bunch of other people cutting wood for someone that needed fuel for the winter. I remember Jack serving others in need. I am sure there will be countless people that will miss him.
