Jackie was such a dear friend that I met in the late 70's at Lipscomb University.. I ended up in the business with her for several years. I met at least 3 of you children and loved hearing what you all were doing and she like the rest of us liked to talk about our grandchildren and if we were together now we would probably talk about our great grandchildren. We will miss her at the retiree staff luncheons. I will miss my friend. Rebel Gamble

I thought so much of Jackie. I worked with her at Lipscomb in the business office for several years. She was always a good friend, and I enjoyed our talks. We knew Jackie and her husband years ago at West End church.
