To the family of the late Jack King: Please accept my deepest sympathy on the passing of Jack. I met he and his late wife, Dot through our neighbors in Bushville, Stuart and Theresa Astles. Jack was always a lovely man and Dot, a perfect lady. God bless them and each of you at this difficult time of loss.
