    It was a privilege and pleasure to work with John. Always the first to help out, and give whatever he could offer. He was a man of great morals and a love of this country. He was a good man.

    Uncle Jack was a kind, loving man who always was happy and cheerful. You knew you had a friend with Jack Coryell that you could trust, and count on him to help any way he could. My heart is sad
    but my mind rejoices knowing that he is in heaven with our Lord.
    If ever an example of a loving caring farther is needed, Jack Coryell
    would definitely be first on the list. I love you Uncle Jack and I will see you in heaven.

    Love Johnny

    YOUR FATHER WAS A FRIEND OF MY PARENTS FOR OVER 60 YRS. HE STOOD UP FOR THEM AT THEIR WEDDING. HE WAS ONE OF THE NICEST MEN I EVER KNEW. NO MATTER WHEN YOU SAW HIM HE WAS ALWAYS IN A GOOD MOOD AND TRULY INTERESTED IN WHAT WAS GOING ON IN OUR FAMILY LIFE. I KNOW YOUR HEARTS ARE HEAVY AS IS MINE. MY OWN FATHER DIED SUDDENLY ON CHRISTMAS EVE AND IT WAS HARD FOR US BUT HE DIDN’T SUFFER LIKE YOUR DAD DID. MY MOM AND I SAW HIM LESS THAN A MONTH AGO AND JUST THURSDAY SAID TO MY MOM LET’S SEE IF HE WOULD LIKE TO GO FOR A RIDE AROUND THE LAKE. OF COURSE WE DIDN’T CALL AND WERE SURPRISED BY THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE PAPER ON SATURDAY. I GUESS WE SHOULD HAVE ACTED ON OUR IMPULSES. MY THOUGHTS ARE PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AT THIS MOST DIFFICULT TIME.
