Uncle Jackie ,as we all called him, played an important part in the lives of our families. From being our pastor when we were married, from a loving uncle, and a beloved travel companion. His love for life and laughter was present in everything he did. He had a way of speaking to everyone like he had known them for years. His sister, Diana, our mother will greet him in heaven. Diana so loved her brother and also just passed Feb 21, 2018. Uncle Jackie would always leave the room laughing and we know he is doing the same now. Much love to all he has left behind. Until we meet again.
