Only once do I remember Jackie without a smile. That was when she was following the leader, jumping over a hedge, off a porch, at a Sunday School class party and she broke her leg. She was a sweet, sweet, gal.

I had the honor of knowing Jackie these past few years. Her bright smile and indomitable spirit will not be forgotten.
My heart goes out to Gene and the whole family.
