  1. Jackie always made me feel so special when I was just a little girl. I did not have a lot of people in my life that ever made me feel special and she was always so kind and sweet to me. She helped me understand that I was a very special little girl and I will be forever thankful to her. She will be missed so very much and the world indeed was a sweeter place with her in it.

  2. Jackie was one of the most special ladies i have ever known. Always a kind word, a sweet smile, I will miss her. Jack, Walter, Eric and all the rest of her family – praise the Lord she is at home in Heaven now. You are all on our prayers.
