I had the privilege of taking care of Mr. Wolford at Crozer Chester Medical Center in August toward the end of his life. Although Mr. Wolford was not a man of many words, we as his medicine team could tell that Mr. Wolford was a good man and good patient. It was an honor to be able to have Mr. Wolford as a patient. Many prayers for his family. Rest In Peace Mr. Wolford.

Dick and I have many many wonderful memories of times with Jack. He was a good man, a child of God, and lived his life loving his family and being a good friend, father, and grandfather. Jack was a quiet man with a great sense of humor and personality. Jack was a lot of fun to be with. He will be sorely missed, but remembered with a lot of love and cherished memories. Dick has known Jack for 65 years and will miss Jack more than words can tell. Sharing those years with Jack and his quiet strength surely enhanced lives. Rest in peace with our Lord, Jack.
