Dear Paula and other family members, I am so sorry for your unexpected loss, and hope that your best memories of Jack will help to sustain you in this most difficult of times.
I wish I could be there to see you off friend. My most sincere sympathies and condolences to Laurie and the Rose family. I am truly sorry to learn of Jack's passing.
Paul and Linda
Dear Laurie and All Sutherland Family Members: We met Jack twice: once in Virginia at the Sutherlands, and at Brendan and Vanessa's wedding, which Jack made magical by sharing his masterful music. Your Jack had talent of astounding proportions, and he had that elusive gift of being a truly happy man.He had his music,he had Laurie, and he lived his life in a beautiful way. Though related more in heart than in actuality, we suffer with you in this great, great loss. Love, All the DeJonghs
Dear Paula, John, Matt and Laurie, Fredericksburg has lost a beloved son and gifted musician. My memories of Jack are from high school days but I followed his career at a distance and was always very proud to know that he had found his passion in the music world. There are so many of us who grieve with you on this day. I know no words to take away the pain of losing a son or a husband. Know that your friends care about you and share your sorrow.
I am glad that Jack will be able to listen to the train whistles blow where he is laid to rest. To his wife, his family, his friends, the greatness of his music is only matched by the greatness of Jack as a human being.
I'm sorry to hear of Jack's passing..I'm shocked to hear how much success in the music industry he had because I remember playing Saturday morning Rec Basketball with him at Walker Grant or Maury and then seeing him around High School.. What an incredible legacy he has left in life aside from being just a great respectful kind kid..You raised a great kid Mrs. Young and I'm sorry..
