My deepest symphathy to the Jardack family. I still remeber vividly the good old days at the Sussex House.
A dear wonderful man that I loved as I did my own father. His kindness and love and patients for all, made the world a better place every day the sun rose, and he was in it. His love for his family and his dear departed wife was unending and steadfast, he was a great man of enormous faith and character and was truly an inspiration to all who knew him, especially through his deep heartfelt love for all, and his ability to forgive all those he loved and even those he didn't. If we all lived as he did the world would be a much better place. He was a remarkable man who lived a remarkable life, and my heart is heavy that he is gone, and my thoughts and prayers are with all his family as he was dearly loved and I am sure will be dearly missed by all. With Kind and Loving Regards Richard Hawley
