Please accept my condolences as you share all the memories of a life well lived. I was hired by your dad in 1968 to teach at Fulton High school and many years later Ms. Jackie was my husband’s secretary at Karns Intermediate School. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out.

Jackie was one special lady. Don’t have one special memory. Just lots of laughter and always fun times with her. Always looked like a picture when she was dressed up for an occasion.
