  1. Dear Betty and members of the Smith family,

    I was sorry to hear about Jack’s death. I like what one man said. He said that we should not say that a Christian died but that he lifed. And that is certainly true of Jack. He is enjoying such joy and abundant life as we cannot imagine. May the Lord raise up other men who love Jesus and love souls like Jack did. I appreciate his heart for evangelism and the wonderful ways that the Lord used him.

    May the Lord give you comfort and strength during these days.

    In Christ,

    Blake Western
