I am so sorry to Jackies famiy for their loss. Even though I have not seen her for many, many years I have only fond memories of her and had hoped to reconnect soon. Her heart was good as gold and the love she gave to my mother and I was never forgotten.
My sincerest condolences to all of Jackie’s family. I always enjoyed talking with her and appreciated her cordial nature. She was a fine lady.
Jackie was a jewel. My condolences to the family. She will be sorely missed.
Jackie was always so nice to me down at the restaurant. She was a good person and will surely be missed.

We are so thankful that we have gotten to know Jackie over the past few years. She was one of the most loving Christian women we have been privileged to have had in our lives. Jackie loved people, especially children, and she gave generously to all who needed anything. No doubt she fed many, many people over the years. She always thought of the needs of others before herself, and she left a legacy of love in the family and friends who were fortunate enough to have been a part of her life. We rejoice that she is with our Heavenly Father, for, as little Mary Jane said, “I’ll see her again in Heaven!” Ronnie, Janie and Mary Jane
Prayers for all the family for the loss of Jackie... She was a sweetheart... She and I would meet to exchange granddaughters when they were growing up!
