Tony, I am SO sorry to hear about Jackie. There are no words that adequately convey just how deeply saddened Ron and I are for you, Brock, Blake, and Chelsea. I remember the first time I met Jackie, she made me feel so welcome and comfortable right away. What a great lady! I was impressed with how beautiful her eyes were and how they lit up and sparkled when she shared stories about her children, and that same sparkle was there when she glanced in your direction. I could see and feel the great amount of love she had for all of you! The love Jackie had for all of you is something that can never ever be taken away. Hold on to that and know that she is with you forever in your heart. My entire family is praying for God’s peace and comfort to surround you all now and in the months to come. Sending much love and prayers in your direction. Your cousin Coreen
