I am so sorry to hear of Jackie's passing.
Although I just met her she was such a blessing in my life.
She's where she wanted to be.
Rest in peace, Jack.

Ed & Terry, So very sorry I cannot make it to give my condolences to you in person. I loved your Mom so much-she was such a wonderful lady and was a big part of my life for a long time through my parents. I'm pretty sure that she and your dad and my mom and dad are now up there together playing cards and teasing each other as they did for so many years! Your mom and dad were both such special people. They will be in my heart forever.
Debbie Circle.
