Debbie and Family,

I am so very sorry for your loss, I could tell by the smiles on your faces in the pictures that were shared on Facebook as well as the memorial video, that you were happier with Jack then ever. I am so glad he was able to bring such happiness into your life even if for a short while. I have absolutely no words to express to you the sympathy that I feel for you. Except for to say, “If God brought you to it, He will see you through it”. I know it is hard to lose a loved one, I have no idea how hard it is to lose a loved one that has brought you so much happiness. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you always.

I am so very sorry I couldn’t make it to the visitation or the service the weather and living in Colliers, WV, did not co-operate.

In Christian Love,

Genevieve Kleyman Ticarich Mester

Jack was such a wonderful caring person. He will be missed by us on earth but God called him & I’m sure he said “Here I Am Lord” He’ll be waiting at the gate for all his loved ones.

There really aren’t words that you can say at a time like this. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family and friends. It will not be the same when I come home to visit and go to church and not see Jack in the choir. Peace Jack.

To all of Jack’s family and Debbie Cordery Family, God has taken another one of his children here on earth home and I know he is in a much better place. God Bless you all at this very sad time! Jack was a special person and friend since our school years in Bellaire and also attended church with him many years ago!

To the Conaway family and Debbie and her family, my deepest sympathy goes out to you. There are no words I can say to make you feel better. There is nothing I can do to take your pain away. The only thing I can do is share some found memories of a great man we all knew and loved. I’ll never forget that infectious smile or that laugh. Usually, always laughing at something one of us girls said or did. He always greeted you with a warm hug or a strong handshake. For the 11 plus years that I’ve known the Conaway family I don’t think I ever saw Jack in a bad mood. He was always so happy. Especially when he was around his daughters and granddaughters. As we reflect on the man he was, we can not forget the love he shared for his church. Always helping out or donating his time. Never saying no. As I type this with tears in my eyes and thinking how this is not really happening. I will try not to mourn the loss of a great man but instead I will celebrate the life he lived and the best friend he gave me. Jack, I know you are where you’re supposed to be but just know we all love and miss you already.

To the Conaway family,

I am so very sorry for your loss, even though, over the years we have drifted apart, I remember being welcomed into your loving home and the friendship shared with Val and Wendy, but where there was one Conaway there were all, so the friendship was family wide. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, I do not have the words to express the heart felt sympathy I feel for you at this time. I lost my oldest sister Wanda Rude on Dec. 30, 2010. I know that God saw me through the loss I experienced as I know He will see you through also. I am so sorry I didn’t make the visitation or the service, but the weather was not on my side, especially living in Colliers, WV now.

In Christian Love,
