Many fond memories we had. It makes me giggle remembering some of them. She will always be in Robert and my heart. So sorry we couldn't be there.

When I think of Jacque, I think of a great smile and happiness, of cookouts, Packer and poker games, and the way she was a good loser on the rare occasion I beat her at backgammon. I also think of the great love she and her husband had for each other. She will be missed. My condolences Frank and family.

What a special person Jackie was! Always laughing and such a zest for life! As Frank always said, "we're not here for a long time, we're here for a good time" and Jackie lived that way. She will be missed. All the best to you all during this difficult time.
