You all are in my prayers. I saw the obituary late last night, and thought that I might be able to be at the service today. However I am still having trouble with my back, and I had the COVID vaccination yesterday so if I do not make the service, I will still be praying for you all.

I'm so sorry about the passing of Dr. Jack but I know he is whole again. He was such a great husband, father, grandfather, and friend. Phyllis, Missy, Zach, and Riley you have all been in my prayers and will continue to be in my prayers in the coming days. Love you all!

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Jack when I was a Biology student at NLU in 1998. I had hurt my back at work and I made a call to Dr. Napoli in Eunice and he told me I had to go see Dr. Murphy. I did and over the course of the next year or so he helped me a lot. One day he asked what my future plans were and I just wasn't sure. He suggested that I look into chiropractic school. I did, and from that moment on the course of my life was changed. Chiropractic became my passion. Dr. Jack even signed my letter of recommendation! I believe God calls you to do certain things in this life and I believe that God used Dr. Jack that day to point me down the path He had chosen for me. For that I am truly grateful. I had an opportunity to personally thank Dr. Jack at a CAL convention a few years ago. He was standing with two of my other mentors, Dr. Joe Wilson and Dr. Mike Branch at the time and I was surprised to see all three of the Doctors that had done so much for me together at the same time, talking like old friends do. I shared my story with them that day and I am happy I did so. Dr. Jack will be truly missed. My prayers go out to each of Dr. Jack's family members, friends and patients today and in the coming months. I share your sorrow but also the joy that you all have knowing that he is in a better place with our Lord. Dr. Jason M. Smith Eunice, LA

Dear Phyllis and Family, We are so glad we knew Jack through church and his chiropractic work. He was a wonderful Christian gentleman who lived his Christianity daily. We loved to hear he and the Kingmen sing at church and I shall never forget how much he helped to relieve my pain the times I visited his office! He lived such a full and happy life and now is enjoying the presence of Jesus! We are praying for all of you that you will experience that peace which passes all understanding in the coming days. We know you have many happy, precious memories to sustain you! Love in Christ, Camille and Lee Adair
