I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Jackie and her husband on 2 occasions when my work brought me to their little town. My condolences to the family. These 2 people were the kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Jackie and i would sit in her living room and talks for hours. She always considered us as " her girls" when we would need a place to stay. Rest In Peace Sweet Lady. You will truly be missed.

Because Terri was one of my childhood friends, I have many fond memories of Jacquita. She was always so pleasant and full of life. I'm pretty sure she will still be making people smile.
