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.
