Beginning when I was a child, I was ALWAYS shown kindness and love by my sweet Uncle Jack. He was special in many ways, so intelligent, creative, talented, but his gentleness and caring kindness shown to me is a tender memory I will always hold dear. I love the Hendrickson Family!!!
All of us here in the Virginia Capital Region want to express our deepest sympathy and condolences to all of Jack's family.
Dear Audra & Family, May you be blessed & comforted during this difficult time. I can't help but think of the great reunion that is taking place at this time..with all of the dear ones that have gone before. With love & Sympathy, AnnaLou & Russ
I remember first meeting Mr. Hendrickson when I was in high school. He was there one day when I was visiting Kim, and he was playing Glen Miller music. I knew the jitterbug, and we danced to "In the Mood". What a great time that was. I will always remember him as a very friendly "Dad".
I have and always will remember Uncle Jack for his kindness and sincere interest in me personally. My condolences to Aunt Audra and my cousins as well as to all that grieve at this time. Love, Curt
Kim, Reyn, Pete and Rob: So sorry to hear of your dad's passing. Am thinking of you during this difficult time. Jeff Green
What a kind a gentle man. I only knew Jack for a couple of years when he and Audra came to visit Kim and Ray in Virginia. My memory of Jack is certainly a happy one. God bless Audra and the rest of the family in this time of loss and grieving.
Kim, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
I learned from his obituary that Uncle Jack was a recipient of the Purple Heart. Typical! He had never mentioned it to me. He didn't boast and he didn't focus the attention on himself. He is just a great, warm, kind, very smart human being. I'm sorry not to be able to associate with him any more. He was a great positive influence on me. Rest in peace, dear Uncle Jack!
