    I regret not making contact with you sooner after we moved back to Charleston this past summer. You always think there will be time, and then there isn’t. You are a very special soul and touched the lives of many people. I treasure the fond memories I have of you and will see you again soon.

    Susan, my thoughts and prayers for you and the family are utmost to me as I lose another “lung buddy”. Rejoice that his suffering is over and that he is with his heavenly Father. It must have been a special messager that sent me to visit Jack and you earlier this month. Please contact me if I can be of any help.

  • Henry Simmons says:

    To all the family – you all are so very special to me and to our church family. Of course, Jack was a great pleasure to so many. His wit and sense of humor put people at ease, and he will be sorely missed. Susan, you and Jack have been and will always be part and parcel of the Berkeley Baptist family. We wouldn’t be what we are without you. Thank you for allowing us to walk alongside of you over the years. We all know that Jack is no longer suffering, and we can only imagine the sheer joy and exhilaration of heaven. We are confident that’s where he is, and by God’s grace, we will soon enjoy what he enjoys now.

    Susan thinking of you and the family at this time you are in my prayers and thoughts.

  • Rob and Sue Fry says:

    We will always remember Jack’s friendship, his good sense of humor, and how he loved everyone when we transplanted together. He went to the hospital with us and held my hand, we laughed together we prayed together. He had a special place in my heart, and every time I take a deep breath my lungs will remind me of him.

    Special prayers to Susan and the family.
    Rob and Sue

    I wish I had a chance to come see ya’ll again before this happened. He will surely be missed. I always think about the times we had together and was extremely happy that ya’ll were able to make it to my wedding. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

    Special prayers and love to Susan and the family

    It has been along time since we have been in contact with each other, but have often thought of you. Sorry it took reading about Jack in the morning paper to remind me I needed to let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    • Susan Elsey says:

      Mickey, it has been such a long time. I think of you often and wonder how you are doing. Are you still in Bonneau? I am across the Tail Race. My condo faces the back of Walmart. Would love to see you and get together for lunch or something.
      My cell phone is 843-729-6678. That is my only phone now.
      I am at 3001 Mariners Way in Hidden Cove.

    • Susan Elsey says:

      Christopher will always be a part of the family. I enjoyed the time we had together with y’all. Had hoped to see you again. Due to Jack’s illness we could not go the the conference this year.

  • Ellen says:

    Susan, my thoughts as well as my family’s are with you today. We are praying for the Lord to comfort you during this difficult time. Jack was very special to us. He always had a way to cheer me up when I was having a bad day. His jokes and witty personality were contagious! He was an inspiration to us all. He was a classic example as proof that Christians can have fun and still be in the will of God. He and you mean more to me than you know. Time, busy life, illness, etc has invaded in our time together but you have been in my thoughts and prayers throughout the years and I will be forever indebted to you for the true unconditional love and concern that you and Jack have shown me every since the first time I met you. I love you Susan! and I love you Jack! I know that Jack is in heaven spreading joy everywhere he walks on the streets of gold. His family members who have gone before him are certainly rejoicing with his presence! Everyone in heaven is happy, that just leaves us here on earth to mourn. That is the hard part. Try to find comfort in the fact that Jack loved you very much, he had many more years with you than was expected (because he was a fighter! and stubborn in a good way!), and in the promise that you will be with him in heaven one day. Until then, I will be praying for you every day sweet friend!
