    Jack,
    Sorry to hear (read) about your Father's passing. Please except my sincere sympathy. I did not know your Father, or that he was a member of Albany Court. When I read the name in ROJ publication, I was first concerned it was you.
    God bless!

    And today, Uncle Jack and his big brother, Don are together again in heaven. <br />
“13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.“<br />
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
