  1. Sam Poulten says:

    So sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. Whether in business dealings or socially, it was always a pleasure to be with him. As a “mortgage man”,
    he always got the job done for our clients and did it as stress free as possible. We seldom saw him without a smile on his face and a
    story to share. We know how devoted to his family he was because he often shared the pride he had for all of you. Please accept our condolences, thoughts, and prayers. We hope the entire family will take comfort in knowing that he will be long remembered by us, and, I’m sure, all whose lives he touched. Please be well.

  3. Helen C. Kennedy says:

    So sorry to hear of the passing of Jack Pierce. I saw him many times in church at the 9:00 weekday Mass at St. Mary’s.
    He was truly a devoted, holy and family man. His kind face will be missed. Please accept my sincere condolences.
    I’m a parishioner at St. Mary Magdalen’s church. I didn’t know him personally but knew he was a wonderful man.

    To the Family: Please accept our condolences for the loss of your loved one. I understand the pain because I have experienced it many times. I would like to share a few scriptures with your family, notice 1 Corinthians 15:55 which tells us the Jehovah God will remove death and the pain It causes on the basis of Jesus Christ ransom sacrifice. John 5:38,29 shows where Jesus said the he will call out to the memorial tombs and those in them will come out, you will be able to see your dead loved ones again. This promise can be read in the Bible at Revelation 21:3,4. May these scriptures bring you comfort now and in the future
