Dorcas, First of all I send my sincere sympathy in the loss of your husband - I had no knowledge of his passing until now. I have been trying to locate you for an entirely different matter and just found out. I apologize for having to contact you in this way, but I have been trying to locate a "Release of Lein" on the Belford property that I purchased from your father and since I have been unable to locate one (the courthouse said there is not one on file and that's not unusual in older Warranty Deeds), I contacted Rick Standifer, Attorney who was partners with Eric Clifford at the time of purchase, and since Eric is no longer practicing due to health problems, he suggested this route to contact you as a last resort. Rick says if you would sign an Affidavit stating that the property (Belford Apartment Building, Lot 6, Lot 6A) note has been paid off, it would serve as a Release of Lein. Would you do that for me? If so, you can email me: and I'll have Rick to draw it up and send it to you. Again, I'm sorry about everything you have been going through. Feel free to call me at 903-272-5396 (cell). Kenny KENNETH L KAMMER, January 26, 2018 Growing up with Jack next-door was an experience I will always be grateful for!! He was almost the brother I didn't have... back when Jack and I were four. From childhood through high-school we shared so many things.... most of them are very happy!! So sorry to hear of this tonight.... He was loved!
Mary Alice Porche, August 2, 2017 Jack is one of the nicest, kindest men I have met. It was always a pleasure talking with him at CityPlace. I learned a lot from him. What a wonderful person he was, and how he adored Dorcas. Dorcas, my deepest condolences to you and the rest of the family. Ann Robertson Southland/7-Eleven Ann Robertson, July 31, 2017 Jack's passing recalls what a great person he was. His professional knowledge of the insurance industry was unmatched and his willingness to assist others was much appreciated by all who knew him. He will also be remembered for his dry wit and sense of humor. We will miss him. Our thoughts are with Dorcas and family at this time of sorrow. George Wilburn & Wanda Wallendorf, July 31, 2017 Always comfortable on a business call when Jack was with me because he was one of the best and one I always looked for when the retired group meets. Dorcus, thoughts are with you but unable to drive due to doctors orders Edwn Smith, July 31, 2017 Jack will continue to be as a fine a gentleman, professional and boss as I have ever encountered. No exaggeration. Dorcas, I am so sorry about his passing. Dan Hughes, July 31, 2017 Truly sorry to learn of Jack's passing. It was a privilege to have worked with him during the A&A days.
