I’m so sorry for your loss. I never met Jack but by his story he was a very diversified person who enjoyed life.
May you be comforted by what the Bible says about those who have died. Jesus said they would be resurrected to a beautiful cleansed earth where there will be no more pain, sorrow or death. Imagine living forever, young and vibrant experiencing endless projects with everyone being your friend. Jesus said “do not marvel at this”. John 5:28,29;
Revelation 21:3,4; Psalms 37:9-11
