My deepest sympathy goes out to the Kortie Family. I have been a loyal
Healthy Pets customer since they opened. Jack was always helpful &
knowledgeable. I looked forward to going to the store, Jack & I had
great talks and he brightened my day with his positive attitude. He
insisted on carrying the 50 lb. dog food bag every time, even though I
was perfectly able. So, I started buying the 35 lb. bag instead. I told him it
was because that was all our food container could hold, a white lie that
eased my conscience. ;). Jack will be missed and again I extend my
sympathies to the Kortie Family.
Sincerely, Carrie Edds

Our thoughts and prayers to Judy, Tom, Stephanie, and the rest of Jack's
family. Jack was an amazing friend and an even better man. Though many
years older and a thousand miles away, I consider myself lucky to have
called Jack my friend. Love ya Jack!

Our hearts and prayers go out to the entire Kortie family. Jack was such
a great guy and good friend.  He was always kind and giving and one of
the first friends in Middlebury when we moved and took over the
Country Victorian B & B.  He was always encouraging and positive.  
He was a good influence on the kids at the Middlebury Boys & Girls
and in town.  He will be greatly missed.  Thank you Jack for your service
to our country.

I pray that the many happy memories of Jack's life with all of you will, with
time, overcome the sadness and pain that have accompanied you all as
you journeyed these later years with Jack. Jack did a lot in the
community, but I particularly remember his dedication to Middlebury. He
worked tirelessly and was a good friend to all. I will always remember our
happy times in Plank Family Reunions. Please be assured of my prayers.
