    We bought Jack's ranch many years ago. 12 years to be exact. Jack sold us the house not the realtor . So many times we thought about the elderly man in overalls who loved his ranch so much and described it with such passion and love . Rest in Peace Jack. You will always be remembered by the two young married people from California who grew into ranchers with 9 horses and a lot of love . We didn't know anything about ranching just the smile and encouragement from a man who loved his ranch. Bless you and Bonnie Jack. Louis and Valerie Kimes
