Dear Ms Beverly
I have so much respect for you and Mr Jack. I looked on him as second father, I will truly miss him but one day we will all be together again. Sending much love to you and if David or I can do anything for you Just let me know
My thoughts and prayers are with the family in this time of sorrow.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
Tracy, I met your father nearly 40 years ago when I covered my first session of the General Assembly -- he was UPI's guy at the capitol. Jack was kind and gracious to me, a young reporter still learning how to practice my trade, and I always appreciated his generosity. And then, years later, I wound up working with you at the AJC. Life is full of funny coincidences.
I'm very sorry to hear of Jack's passing, but I wanted you to know how much I liked and respected him. I hope you'll pass along my condolences to your family.
With deepest sympathy to the Wilkinson family during your time of grief...God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead.
If someone couldn't like and respect Jack - enjoy spending time with him -- there was something wrong. He was a great guy and first rate journalist. Raised (with Beverly, of course) two great children who've given him a lot of reasons to be proud.
Dear Beverly: I have such wonderful memories of you and Jack during my stay in Atlanta. He was a terrific guy and a great friend and you were a warm and friendly host. I wish I could be with you at this sad time but, as I have learned, these sad memories will one day be happy ones. Love, Pinky Vidacovich
One of the highlights of Sig and Marina's picnic outings was the chance to visit with Jack and Beverly as both of our families had departed the neighborhood on Middlesex Avenue. Jack always was glad to pinpoint the more recent events in their lives and to proudly proclaim the girls recent successes and their current places of employment. His dry small anecdotes were always enjoyable. Maxine and I send our prayers and condolences to the family and regret the picnics are now only enjoyable memories of our past..

Beverly, Tracy and Kelly; I am so sorry for your loss. I thought the world of Jack and both Beki and I are so sorry we could not be there yesterday. As your wonderful obit noted, Jack was a multi-talented journalist and a wonderful manager. He was so even keeled -- I never saw him lose his cool. He was a great help to me throughout my UPI years. Bless you all during these sad days.
In memory of a kind and gentle man. He will be missed by all those who had the delightful opportunity to spend time with him.
