Betty and family, Jane and I are truly saddedned to hear of Jack's death. Please know you are in our prayers and thoughts. Betty, I sure wish that I could bring you a big dish of your apple sauce. It was so comforting when you and Jack brought it to us when my Mom died in 1978. Jack was a true Gentleman!

To the Richardson Family; Jack was a true gentleman and one of the first suppliers that I met when I first started in the funeral service. I served my apprenticeship in Portage County and that firm was a customer of Baumgardner Products and my firm still is today. I remember his friendly voice on the phone while taking orders. My sympathies to his family. Sincerely, Mitch Babcock
