This morning I got this final post from the Jack’s Winning Words blog –
Jack’s Winning Words 12/21/22 (Guest authored by Jack’s son Dave Freed)
“Farewell! God knows when we shall meet again.” (William Shakespeare) It’s the end of an era. After over 20 years of bringing a motivational message to friends and family, Jack’s Winning Words as we know it has come to its end. My father Jack died yesterday in his sleep with his daughters by his side. Five days a week, 50+ weeks per year, for over 20 years means Jack sent out over 5,000 Winning Words messages. It was a labor of love, and I hope you found the messages valuable. 😉 Jack
Funeral arrangements are pending, but the expectation is to have a service sometime in January.
As readers of this blog well know, I got a lot of inspiration for my blog from posts that Jack made to his blog, Jack’s Winning Words. Jack was the pastor of Holy Spirit Lutheran Church that I joined when we moved to Michigan in 1978.
As Jack’s son pointed out in this post, Jack shared over 5,000 posts to his blog, always in the same format – a single paragraph featuring a short, thought-provoking quote. Jack most often used his paragraph to ask what the quote meant to the reader. Jack’s posts and his thoughts will be greatly missed.
God speed Jack Freed, God speed. We will meet again.
