Dear Patty, John, TJ, Rob, Dan and Mitzi- So sorry this day has come but I will always remember the impact Jack and all of you had on my life. Some of the highlights were the teasing of the girls when John & I double-dated, helping dig the addition foundation so we could go out, and the fun we had at the lake. Take care of each other in this trying time.

Mrs. Nangle, John, TJ, Robbie, Mitzi and Danny…I’m incredibly sorry to hear of Mr. Nangle’s passing. What fond memories I have of our many years of friendship and fun times at St. Mary’s and beyond. He was never without a smile and he lived life to the fullest! I know you all have your own special memories of him and I pray these memories will bring you peace and comfort during this very sad time. I will always smile when I think of him. He was truly “one of the good guys”!

- Bridget Garry Fenton, Wednesday August 18th, 2021

Dearest Cousin Patty, I was so sad to hear of Jack's passing. When I was younger, your house (along with your mom's) were my favorite places to visit when we came back to Springfield. My favorite memory of Jack is that mischievous grin....always made ya wonder what he was up to. We're praying that God wraps his comforting arms around you and your whole family during this time and that you all keep the best memories of him in your hearts, where they will stay forever.
