The Goodmans have been long time friends of mine for over 45 years. We have shared each others joys and sorrows over those many years. I'm so happy I was able to give Jack one final hug a few weeks ago when I saw him at a celebration at First Baptist Church. I am happy that he was able to live each day to the fullest up to the end. To Jack Alan and Linda Kay and their family, I offer my heartfelt condolences and my prayer that God would comfort them and give them His loving peace.

Jack and I are so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. He and your mother were always so friendly toward us while we were on staff at FBC. He will be missed so much by so many. Our prayers are with your family at this time.

I had been filming Jack's talk about the design and building of the "new" church in 1968-69 and one day we were driving around downtown to take photos of previous locations and the land the church had owned and exchanged in the three-way trade. My son, then a sixth month old was riding along. I got out at one sight to take photos, leaving he and Jack in the car and when I returned, Jack was on his knees in

I'll always remember that Jack was one of the people at First Baptist that respected me and encouraged me to assist with the Samaritan Counseling Center and FBC Austin Foundation. He also let my son hunt on his ranch when our family wasn't able to provide that experience for him. He honored the homeless by serving lunch at the Austin Baptist Chapel. I'm sorry that I don't have more time to learn from him, and I know you will miss him greatly.
