I am so sorry to hear of Jack's passing. 92 is a wonderful life, and I know Jack well enough to know he enjoyed all his years. I was happy to have played golf with Jack, and had many times of fellowship at the Temple together. I want to express my sorrow to Betty, Marilyn, and the rest of the family. Hazel and I will continue to pray for the entire Orr family. We know Heaven is real, and we too will soon join him in the presence of the Lord. "Heaven's Sounding Sweeter all the Time".
