Sorry to hear about Jack. My sister, Carl Bahr had talked to him frequently. Kay Shockley Dunlap
So sorry to read about Jack. John and I are thinking of you.
My condolences to the family, Jack was always so welcoming to us as our daughter has lived next door for 2 years, and our other daughter will live next door for the next 2 years. The girls always felt as Jack was watching out for them too.
I met Cousin Jack only one year ago although we had talked by phone many times after he found me on the internet. His Grandmother, Nellie Dee was a sister to my Grandfather Sumner Shockley. It was wonderful talking with Jack about our families and friends from Maryville, MO where we were born. I’m sure you know that the world has lost a great treasure named Jack Price. May the Lord Jesus comfort you Jean and your family and give all peace.
Jean, Jackie, Cindy and Carla and family. My deepest sympathy to all of you we enjoyed having you across the street years ago. Buddy enjoyed jack visiting him in the hospital several times. My thoughts are with you at this sad time.
