Jackie was my mothers back door neighbor prior to both relocating to the Cottages. I visited Jackie many time at both her residence and in the hospital and rehab facilities. Jackie was always uplifting even when she was the one deserving help. I was proud to call her a friend and glad she was a part of our lives. May God bless you richly as you enter his kingdom and rejoice again with Billy. You will be missed but look forward to getting together in heaven when God calls. Love and condolences to the family.
