Guest Book Highlights

October 09, 2011 "I never realized what a hero Jack really was until I recently chose him to do a research project for school.I chose him because last year I watched my mother suffer for many days before she died from MS. As hard as it was to watch my mother suffer for days I do not want to imagine how horrible it was for her.From all that I have read and all the videos I have watched this man had a mission ney a calling to aid those that are suffering. I hope that If I ever came to point where I wanted to end my pain and suffering I truely hope that there is someone like Jack there to help me. God Bless you Jack." - Jessie Enfield (Bellevue, NE)
June 11, 2011 "It is a great regret that Dr. Kevorkian's is a hand I will never get to shake. He was supposed to do a book tour in NYC in the fall, and I was looking forward to meeting him. I wanted to tell him how much I admired him, for his fierce independence more than anything else. He was a true individual who marched to the beat of his own drum-- if it was indeed a drum he heard. Here is my tribute to him:" - Julie "InYourFaceNewYorker" (Brooklyn, NY)
June 07, 2011 "Rest in Peace Doctor. You did such a wonderful service to those that needed you." - Susan H (MA)
June 07, 2011 "Dear Jack, as a person who has worked as both a Chaplain for a Level I Trauma Center and a Police Chaplain I applaud your life's work. I have always admired you for your compassion, tenacity and willingness to do 'whatever it takes' for what you believed in. You paved the way for many of us to follow. In this aging population, I believe you had more support than you knew, but people are afraid to let their views be known, because Euthanasia has never been seen as politically or religiously correct. If you took a poll I think you would be quite surprised. My only regret is that you won't be around when my end of life comes. Gentle blessings to you always. I look forward to meeting you someday!" - Jeanne Laird (Downers Grove, IL)
June 07, 2011 "With age I have come to know what you are all about. I wish that you may rest in peace and know there are many people who could have used your help." - Elizabeth Carter (Williamsburg, VA)
