I will always remember Jack (and Betty) as important people in my life while growing up. So sorry to hear of Jack's passing, but understanding that the grief is here on earth.....he is reunited with Betty and there is certainly celebration in heaven!

To Jack and his loving extended family....it was my honor to know the North family and respect all that they embrace in loving and caring for their neighbors and friends. It is my honor to play for both Jack's and Betty's funerals as we celebrate the lives they lived. I pray that Jack is now at peace and he is beside his loving Betty.

My parents were good friends with Jack and Betty and I attended Woodruff Grove UMC with them. My prayers are with the family at this difficult time
