Tom and I looked forward to visiting with Myles and Jackie every trip we took. The kindness and friendship, hospitality was very genuine. I recall my first meeting with Jackie was at the fish ponds. We sat down and chatted about gardening, good foods and family.
Even in the most recent trip she was so positive and welcoming.

She has left a wonder legacy in her children.

Blessings to you all.
