Today, we have stopped our regular routines to pay tribute to Jacquez “Jac” Love. Jac loved baseball. All he dreamed about as a little boy was becoming a professional baseball player so that he could buy his mom a mansion. He was full of life and had a heart of gold, with a bright smile.
He accepted Christ at an early age.
