Jackie and I became acquainted 28 years ago while dropping our daughters off at kindergarten. I couldn’t help but notice the sweet, proud mother with the million-dollar smile. She quickly became not just a good friend, but a genuinely true friend.

Weekly phone conversations always began with “hello special lady” and would end with “you are precious.” Jackie never forgot a birthday, never ever spoke a bad word about anyone, and truly loved God, her family and friends.

She was a loyal friend and could be trusted with the most personal conversations we would have. She always made time for me, when a friend was needed the most. I’m going to miss her, my tiny treasure with such a large heart.

A lot of spirit , joy and accomplishment in such a small package! Such an honor to know Jacqueline. She was a wonderful credit to Jack and Jackie; they were a righteous couple. Jacqueline lit up the room wherever she was.
I loved to watch the devotion between James and Jacqueline. He adored her and she Him.
Christy is so like her mother, witty, bright, and creative. Jacqueline will leave all of us better for knowing her.
Bless you, James and Christy.
