Posted on 07/06/2005 9:20:00 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
Just received the following message from FReeper Tahiti's wife:
I do not know if I am contacting the appropriate person. However, I wanted to let the people at Freerepublic.com know that my husband, Jack Glennon, was killed in an accident on July 3, 2005.
Jack spent many hours of his time daily/weekly at your website and I know he posted often. I just wanted to let you know of his tragic passing.
He was a dynamic, wonderful man and a loving and devoted father. Freerepublic was such a big part of his life that I felt I needed to let someone know who might be able to post this information.
His obituary can be found in the St. Louis Post Dispatch in the Tuesday and Wednesday editions (which I know is a liberal paper - he reminded me often!).
Condolences to his family. Very saddening.
I'm so sorry to hear of this, Jim.
Prayers to you, Sherry.
Prayers for the Family
Condolensces to Sherry and Jack's family.
I hate it when good people pass on (for whatever reason.)
Prayers. May God bless his family.
May God rest his soul.
Prayers for his family.
Many prayers for Jack and his family and my sincerest condolences. I am saddened to learn of his tragic accident.
Prayers for Sherry and her family.
God Bless you and your Family

So sorry to hear that. We are far and wide, yet still a close family. Prayers for Mrs. Glennon and family.
What horrible news. My prayers are on the way.
Prayers for the repose of Jack's soul, and for strength and consolation for Sherry, and the rest of his family, and friends.
Deepest condolences, Mrs. Glennon. Your husband had many friends here. Thank you for thinking to tell us the news.

And to Jim Robinson, how wonderful knowing that your website gave enjoyment to Jack and gives enjoyment to many daily.
It also gives us many good memories of each other.

Sening thoughts and prayers for Tahiti and his family
I'm very sad to hear of this accident and join with all the others here lifting up his wife and all his loved ones to God for His peace and blessing as they deal with Jack's unexpected homegoing.
Thank you for allowing your husband to share so much of his time with this community. I know spouses have a hard time sometimes with the time spent on FR. I want to thank you for being so gracious and respectful for letting us know. I pray that the Lord Comforts you and allows all of the rich feelings and memories of your relationship to remain connected in thier appropriate place.

Sherry,Thank you for alerting us.We will all miss him and his posts and I want to say I will pray for your family with this sudden shock,God bless you,fatima
Thanks for posting this. May he rest in peace. It sounds like his wife went to some trouble to let his FRiends here know about his passing. That was very sweet and kind of her.
Like the other gentleman's son who posted of his father's death last week. It is good to know how much FR means to folks.
I'm so sorry to hear this, Jim. Thank you for letting us all know so that we may send our prayers Sherry and the kids' way. Tahiti will be sorely missed, and I pray hard for his family and friends. May God comfort them and hold them close. May they fall into His loving arms. They are in my thoughts and prayers from here forward.
My the Lord provide strength, wisdom, faith and grace in this time of trial to Jack's wife, children and other family. :(
I'm sorry to hear about the loss of this fine Freeper. Prayers for Sherry and the family. May be Sherry will join us here, as her husband did. It's a good place to spend some time and take your mind off your personal problems or sadness.
Sherry - I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I am so sorry.
I'm so sorry to hear that. Prayers for the comfort of his wife and family and may God welcome him home.
Mrs. Glennon, please know you have my best prayers and most profound condolences. May God comfort and bless you.
Prayers for Sherry and her family.
I cannot imagine the pain you are going through..
A prayer for your husband, Jack, and for you and your family.
May God bless you and be with you at this difficult time, and always.
Rest in Peace FRiend. You'll be sadly missed. My prayers go out to Sherry and family.
Such sad news....
Our prayers and condolences from his Freeper family to his "physical" family. He will be missed. Heaven is richer tonight.
