    Dear Fred & Joanne,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I will really miss Jackie at our girls Walmart meetings on Friday nights. Jackie had a velvet voice at Walmart, over the phone and paging. I will always hear that. We worked together for 14 years around the fitting room, we saw sights and heard stories you only read about, matter of fact maybe we should have written our own book!
    Jackie loved her many,many cats, saw many a photo of her babies, and always with cat food in her shopping cart! We also shared recepies, some food, but mainly mixed drinks. She was a sharp lady,both in looks and wit,loved her earrings,that was her bling!
    She will be truely,truely missed.

    We are so sorry for your loss. Jackie was a very special person. I always enjoyed our conversations and her smile. She spent many of the good times and hard times with me, and I her. My first husband Howard and my present husband Kyle loved picking on her, but she dished it out pretty well too. We all had alot of great times together. I look forward to seeing her in Heaven. God bless all of you.
