Aunt Jacki there are just to many memories to post in here. What I do remember is that you have been there my entire life. Normally family you don’t get to choose your born into your family. However you chose us and we chose you.You will always be my aunt Jackie Joretta is my cousin. As well asKenny and Wayne. You are my children’s godmother. And you treated Corinne like a grandbaby. All the special things you did for her over the years. I remember going to your house after my gallbladder surgery and you took care of myself and her well I recovered. Corinne had her own room at your house every where you lived. And you were straightforward with your advice whether I wanted to here or not. I know that at one point many years ago we almost became related through marriage. I know you were somewhat disappointed when that didn’t happen however it was not Relevant you are my family regardless and I love you so much blood doesn’t mean anything. It was the bond. Rest in peace sweet beautiful lady. I know you are no longer suffering and are probably up in heaven Having a good ol time and raising Cain just waiting to meet us again one day. I don’t think you realize how many lives yo really touched while you were here on earth. I am a better person because you we’re in my life. Go rest high on the mountain. Till we meet again.
