He played in a band many years of his life, and could dance the night away. He had a passion for playing the guitar and singing. And he could get a crowd going. But Jack had one greater passion than music, playing guitar or dancing. That is that Jack loved the Lord. He was a very spiritual man. He walked with Jesus daily. And was an evangelist for God. He would talk to everyone about the Lord’s grace and mercy and try to bring them to the feet of Jesus. Daily he had the radio set to praise and worship music and meditate in the spirit of the Lord. He used to say “I’m just a man, a sinner”. “I am not perfect”. But he is no longer a sinner or just a man. For he is perfect in God’s eyes and forgiven, by God’s love.

Home in Heaven
I am home in heaven dear ones; Oh so happy and so bright. There is perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light. every earthly trial is over; every restless tossing passed. I am safely home in heaven with unending peace at last. Try to look beyond the shadows, Pray to trust the Father’s will, We will one day meet again, and always know I love you still.

“But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself”. Philippians 3:20-21

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life”. John 3:16

    I understand God’s purpose of why. I know others don’t. God is so merciful and forgiving. And I thank God that you found him and carried him in your heart. I know life wasn’t easy for you and mistakes were made. But forgivness covers all. And I know you are walking the streets of gold. Not only are you rejoicing with the angles but you probably are singing lead vocals:). This life was unkind to you dear dad, but God gave you love and a second chance freed you from your chains and now you are whole again with the best blessing ever…Eternal Life with the Father and Son. I love you then, now, and always will…. Becky
