Hello Arlo, my name is Randy Benoit. I doubt if you would remember me. I played bass for you at 2 high school performances. I think it was 82' and 83'. I forget what school. I've been a paraplegic since Aug 04' the good of this is I can use my arms & my brain. but that's not important. what is, is life & death. I am so sorry of your loss... Jackie and all your loved ones that have passed. Are watching over you and your family.I hope longevity for you and a good life. A friend for life, Randy P.S. Thank you for teaching me more about, folk and music.
We have lived in the same times as Jackie and Arlo, we married in 1969,
we named our son Arlo....we never stopped listening to the music...and playing it to the children...and we are so sorry to hear about Jackie.
We live in England, and never met or saw a concert, but the words of songs have been so important to us over the years......so, in a way, you have been here with us, all this time.
Love and Peace, Jane and Alfy.
A Tear Within Sorrow A Smile Within Remembrance Intermingled As One!!!
Our thoughts & Prayers go out to you, Arlo & family for your great loss of wife,mother&grandmother. May Jackie be in your heart's forever.
Tell everyone that you are not suffering anymore
I too lost a loved one to Cancer.
It was my daddy John L Russell Sr. I know the feeling you are going through because I've been there myself. The Lord taketh and the Lord giveth you will see her again one day in heaven just as I will my daddy. She would want you to keep on writing songs , performing your music and entertaining the people who love you. I have been listening to your music all of my life and it never gets old. At 51 years of age I too I'm a hippie. God bless you and your family. Your friend and fan Johnny Russell.
I am sorry for your loss. My wife Dottie, like me, a fan of your music, passed from the same malady a few years back. I understand the hard transition. I wish you the best. "Alice's Restaurant" has been a meme among my circle for half a century. Thanks for the memories, D. Danker
I remember meeting her at the dedication of Alice's Church, she was lovely and warm - my heart goes out to you and the family, i wish i had heard sooner, but then that wouldn't have changed anything would it? She will live on forever as you will Arlo, you can't have one without the other. i hope you can spend some time with the Thangka i was graced to deliver to you and that it helps you and those you love in whatever ways you need. Though i'm no longer in reasonable driving distance, my heart always is
It says that "This Guest Book will remain online permanently". Most important, Jackie's Love through Spirit and her Energy will remain in the Universe and surround her loved ones forever!! Fly in Peace, Jackie.
Thinking of you and keeping your family in our prayers.
My hear aches for you and your family... So sorry for your loss
Jackie will be missed here @ Seabreeze Organic Farm, she shopped regularly while in Fl at our farm. Our experience with Jackie was a warm sweet and loving person.
Our deepest condolences to her family.
SeaBreeze Organic Farm (Fl)
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
I offer my condolences in this very trying time. May you find comfort in God's promises that very soon all suffering will end and no person will say "I am sick".
In 1973, after high school graduation, a friend and I hitchhiked from Texas to Arlo's farm in Washington, Mass. We walked up to the house and saw Jackie with the kids in tow, Arlo, and some of their friends cavorting in the yard. Jackie invited us to dinner and to spend the night, insisting over Arlo's objections. Arlo said that a couple "freaks" like us should be in Baja California, rather than Massachusetts. But, he relented, and they put us up for two nights. Jackie made spaghetti, Arlo played guitar, and we all sang. They both were very kind, but she exuded love.
Arlo, We are so sorry for your loss, I never met you in person , but feel that I have as my sister is Trish Lampro, and through the years we have heard about you and your wonderful family. Our hearts go out to all of you GOD bless, YOU ALL.
Mr. Guthrie- I was just listening to one of my favorites on Youtube "City of New Orleans" and saw the posting of your wife's passing. Please accept my sympathies and condolences.
sincere condolences to you and your family,may you find peace and comfort from the one that gives it best.God is there for you.(happy are the mericiful,since they will be shown mercy.)(matt.5:7)......QG
Visited Stockbridge area this weekend for the first time. Stopped at the church and Arlo's bus was parked next to the church. It was so quiet and I couldn't fathom all the memories Jackie and Arlo had there. A great experience. Goodnight, Jackie.
I had the pleasure of speaking to Jackie a few times and came away with the thoughts of how loving, warm and caring she was. (always smiling too) May God grant you comfort and peace. What a wonderful family she and Arlo have created...
Love and Peace to you all..Ginger Donaldson
Arlo,and Family, I wish you Peace in this time of sorrow. May Jackie's Soul rest in Peace.

Dear Mr. Guthrie I couldn't help but to smile when I read the statement you made about how you and your wife didn't always like each other. It showed that you both had good communication and a sense of humor in your marriage.Please be assured of Jesus promise in John 8:28,29.

I lost my husband of 45 yrs 1 year ago and my 37 y/o son 2 weeks later. As you know, those great loves only come around once in a while. I'm a big fan of yours and your dad's also. So sorry for your beautiful Jackie's passing. I know firsthand what you're going through. Your kids will make it a little easier but it takes a long time to get over losing your spouse. Blessings to you and your family.
We were so sad to hear of Jackies passing, We will always remember the friendship we had with you and the family..

To the the family of Jackie Guthrie - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that she will be missed by many.
I know that words can't express how you and your family are feeling right now. A great lady leaves a great hole.
To Arlo and all of Jackie's family, I am so sorry for your loss. May you be comforted and uplifted by the love of your friends all over the world (and that includes me).
Arlo and family. Deepest regrets for the loss of Jackie. I knew you briefly in Waialua during the 70's on Crozier DR. Jackie amazed me at how sweet and warm she always was. Saw you in Austin and took you to your hotel after the Armadillo concert. I loved her too. She will always be a sweet, sweet soul! I have a house in Austin that you and your family are always welcome to use. Thinking of you all with love from Texas.
Liz (from the old farm house at the end of Crozier)

My deepest sorrow and condolences to the Guthrie Family, on the loss of your dear loved one.

May all your memories bring you a measure of comfort and peace at this time. ~ Alabama
God bless you and your loved ones ~
Arlo..A generation grieves with you...
I pray that God will provide strength and comfort for her family and close friends.
with love and prayers from the wendell family.
Arlo, Great love endures, as do those like Jackie who cultivate it. May that truth -- and the truth that you returned that great love in kind to Jackie and that she knew it and adored it -- bring you comfort in the hard days and nights ahead. May the light of life you shined on those of us have listened to and loved your music radiate back on you and be a source of solace. May all of those who love her and were loved by her, those whom she loved and nurtured, also know solace and peace.
Sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the Hearer of prayer at this time. Psalm 65:2
JACKIE GUTHRIE FAMILY-OUR SYMPATHY,PRAYERS AND LOVE COMES TO YOU MAY IT CAUSE YOU PEACE.SOON WILL COME BLESSINGS FROM JEHOVAH AND HIS SON.MATTHEW 6:9,10.
so sorry for the loss of your beautiful wife. prayers are with you and your family at this most difficult time.
This is a giant loss to all motherhood as Jackie was a woman who relentlessly loved her husband, children and grandchildren beyond everything in her life. A kind, generous, loving, giving, courageous woman who put her love of her family first in everything she did. This world has forever lost one of the most amazing and talented woman, wife, mother and grandmother ever known. No one can ever replace the huge love in her heart for her family. Forever rest in peace and she will journey forever with Arlo, children and grandchildren in love.
Go in Peace Jackie. Gods blessings to the family.
Love is the answer FREDRICK STEBBINS

Your beloved Jackie is now with the Angels in Heaven.....
