Dear Valerie and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Jack as a great stake missionary to me in Nov. 1970 as he taught me the Gospel at Cathy's home there in Sunset. He was always so excited about teaching the Gospel. I listened to every word as he taught me and prayed about each discussion and Cathy was so excited to have Jack there teaching me. My heart goes out to you and your family and pray for comfort and strength to you all. Hugh Heindel
