    I was saddened to hear the news of the loss of your father. I enjoyed talking to him. He was full of wisdom and knowledge, and he willingly shared it.
    This expression of sympathy comes with love. May God comfort you in His everlasting arms. May His peace fill you. May His promise of eternal life sustain you. Because Christ lives, we shall live also.
    Rest in Power. Rest with the ancestors.

    When I was nine years old my uncle Zack gave me two gifts…a Dash hound that I named Scout and a Pecan tree that we planted in my mother’s backyard 55 years ago. The Pecan tree has been bearing fruit for many years. So from now on when winter comes and the cold wind starts to blow the leaves from the tree and the pecans start to fall, I’ll be remembering my uncle Zack.

    My Uncle Zack was my father’s twin brother. He was a wonderful an kind man, who would always kid my about my dogs, especially when I once owned a beagle……a beagle who never went hunting. Love you Uncle Zack, may God bless you. Joan
