Not sure what to say?

Geri, I am so sorry. You and Jack were a perfect team, and you both contributed so much to the library world and the lives of many individual librarians, including me.

Dear Geri,
I'm so sorry to hear of Jack's passing. I think of him every time I pass the Hamline Law Library. I remember him taking a group of us there on a little field trip when I was working on my MLIS at St. Kates. My sincere condolences.

Geri, my sympathy to you on your loss. You and your husband always seemed like such a good team! He will be with you always.

Jack was my favorite and best boss ever. He was a kind and exceedingly pleasant human being. I am so sorry for your loss.

Gerry you are in my prayers. Many good memories of Jack and CLIC.

Gerry, you and Jack showed me what it might be to live in the community of librarians. Thank you both for your friendship. Jack's quiet humor made every gathering better. As my Quaker friend says, I will hold you in the light ....

My sympathy to you, Geri, in the loss of Jack. He was the model of a service oriented and always professional librarian. Jack was also always kind and caring. He gave willingly of his knowledge and expertise and was an inspiration to many.

To Gerry: My deepest condolences to you on the loss of your dear husband. He was the ultimate gentleman, kind to everyone, and always could be counted on to work for and stand up for all the important things. He left the world a better place.
