    Mary Ellen & Family and the entire Stoneburner Family:

    We were saddened to learn of Jack’s passing. We had heard that he had been sick, so perhaps this was a blessing for Jack that he is no longer suffering. However, it leaves an empty spot in the hearts of the entire family.

    I have fond childhood memories of the Stoneburner family. Over the years we haven’t seen them as often, but whenever I saw Jack, he always had a big smile on his face.

    May your memories and the fact that Jack is at peace help you all through this difficult time.

    Don and I send sympathy and our love.

    We do not know you personally but our son Ben is a friend of Harry’s and told us of Jack’s death. We were so very sorry. Please accept our sympathies.

    I’m so sorry to hear of Jack’s passing, it will leave a big hole in your family gatherings.
