I miss driving in the car with you because you had a lead foot! I keep thinking about the time you had me wake Ricky up by using the smoke alarm, he was so mad at me, lol. I remember when you took me on vacation with you to the beach. I have so many memories of you, thank you for making me feel so loved and for everything you have done for me and my family. I love and miss you so very much! See you Heaven, RIP my second mom.

We loved to laugh with her, and are very sorry in her loss for all who were close to her. I look forward to seeing her, joyful and well, welcome me someday into heaven! Miss you, Jackie!
