Online obituary:


  1. So very sorry for your loss.

  2. I remember Jack well, and Jim, too, and had several conversations with Johnnie Faye when I was Ms. Grace’s home health nurse years and years ago. Such a wonderful family, Ms. Grace was one of my favorite patients. Condolences and blessings to all.
