FOOT NOTE

Just a word about JACK L. COLEMAN. JACK was a professional. Some of his experiences included: Sergeant in 585th Ambulance Company (the only unit to receive 2 Presidential Citations) WWII, on the front lines of advancing Allied forces. Once, he spoke with the ever-present impressions obviously seared in his mind... of his medical team first entering the horror of concentration camps, stepping over countless dead and dying... just minutes earlier having been murdered or left for dead by Hitler's Nazi machinery.

JACK was a member of the Dr. Fuller's Old Fashioned Revival Hour - quartet. He received his Bachelors and Masters degrees at USC; as a music teacher, JACK taught 2 high school guys (who became the Righteous Brothers); later, JACK was Coordinator of music - for the Orange County Superintendent of schools; Educational Director for Walt Disney Corporation; Musical Director for Oral Roberts World Action Singers; Music Director for the King Family TV Series; Choral Director for the Laguna Festival of Opera, Laguna Beach, California, and for the Geneva Youth Musicale, Switzerland. JACK was an avid high performance sailplane expert. (Incredible experience to fly with him... silently soaring about the earth as we moved from thermol to thermol.)

JACK was a man of faith. One of his first composed works was: THE CENTURIAN, nominated for a Grammy; followed by A CITY OF THE KING (both produced at NBC, Burbank for hour long TV specials; and several musical pieces for young people: ZACH JR; THE BOY WHO CAUGHT THE FISH, and many other compositions. His work for children: placed First at the New York City Film Festival.

Perhaps the most quoted verse I recall JACK sharing with others was... from the book of Proverbs 3:5-6... Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

JACK passed on June 6, 1985. The exquisite pianist, Lee Farrell (Bill Medley's pianist/ Will Farrell's father)... accompanied himself... as he sang YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL at JACK'S memorial service. Dr. Robert Bowman, founder of FEBC reflected on JACK's contribution to music in the world. Finally, SARAH spoke from her heart for about 10 minutes... reflecting on: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE MIRACLE HOPED FOR DOESN'T HAPPEN... ending, WE still give thanks and praise our Great GOD for His continued goodness to us. JACK received his miracle: His is forever, safely with the LORD whom he served.

JACK first met SARAH COLEMAN while guest speakers at a single's conference?! Go figure! SARAH is still on the front lines of faith and faithfulness for our Lord Jesus. I am so thankful to GOD she has been part of our family all these years. When I first met SARAH back in 1974, she having traveled to over 100 countries speaking for the Lord, early on Sarah commented, GOD has never promised to honor my words; but He has promised to honor His. As an advisor and prolific writer for corporate and political leaders, SARAH is the kind of person who has received more awards and recognitions than she cares to remember. SARAH is really into "de-accumulation"... so it's funny as she struggles to give away things... that endlessly arrive at her door from so many kind people!



SARAH is glad to know that JACK's music is still loved by many. As it is made available here, please feel free to share it with whomever. Many years ago, Sarah helped Jack pull together Crescendos and Diminuendos - a devotional book for musicians. It's still wonderful read today, and I'm sure makes a great gift for those leading and participating in music in the church.

There's hardly a day gone by all these years that I can still hear when Jack said, You don't need to tell me I'm a sinner... BUT please... remind me every day... I have a great Savior! When I think of Jack and Sarah the verse which always comes to mind... is from Psalm 90: "LORD, teach me to number my days, that I might present to Thee a heart full of wisdom."
