I worked with Jackie at the Monte Carlo, she was always fun and nice to be around. My most fondest memories of her was when we would talk about aliens, The Walking Dead, and The Game Of Thrones, we would always bounce theories off each other. God bless her soul.

My family lived down the road from Jackie’s. We became friends when we were little and remained friends until we both left home at 18. We would ride her donkey when he would let us. When he didn’t want to be ridden he would put his head down and we would go flying off and I would land on top of her. One day we went over to Mabel’s to get ice cream. Some tourists were stopped there. They asked if they could take our picture on the donkey. We would also go swimming every day in the ditches and canal or the gravel ponds. One day my dad was on his way home when he saw Jackie standing in a mud puddle crying and looking for a contact that had come out. He helped her look and was surprised to find a bubble in the pond turned out to be her contact.
