"I just read that Jack passed away. I live in Des Moines so don?t always see everything. I am so sorry for your loss. I grew up with Jack, Charles and Sarah. We played many a night on my front lawn on North 8th. I lost my husband to 11 years ago, he a Vietnam veteran. If you read this please pass this on to Sarah too. We lost touch many years ago but thought about all of them often. I live in Clive, Ia now and my last name is Wills."
"Rest in peace my dear friend. Hopefully you and Chuck are catching up, and you and my dad are sharing stories like you always did. God bless you. I'm sorry you went through so much pain, especially the past year. You were lucky to have Barb and your Grandsons, and they were lucky to have you. I was blessed to have you as a friend for most of my life. Miss you. "
"The Weiderholts were neighbors of my mother and I will always remember the kind things they did for her. "
