April, Jimmy, and Elizabeth,

John and I wish we could be there today in person to pray with you and honor Jackie. The memories that we share from our Providence Day days and beyond will always be among the best times we have had. We miss our best friend Susan. Some of our fondest memories are from the many trips to Wrightsville beach! We will cherish your family and the dear place they hold in our hearts.

Jackie was my mom’s neighbor and best friend. Evelyn and Jackie travelled together, laughed and cried together. She was truly one of a kind and will be missed by so many. We will always love you Jackie. This photo was taken at Christmas 2019 just weeks before my mom passed ...now they are laughing and hugging in heaven

There aren't words enough to praise God for the life of Jackie Wray.
Never heard unkind words come out of her mouth. The most loving person I've ever known. When I first met her she told me she already loved me because she knew her son did and we never had unkind words.
God has blessed me with two loving mothers and she will be missed greatly too.
Sending Big Love to all! πŸ’–βœ¨πŸ’«
