    I love you mamma. With the world turning in a circle, sun rise and sundown, I will think of you as my sunshine while the chickadees sing their song. Love, Cathy

    So sorry for your loss, I have seen some of Jackie’s art it’s beautiful. Went to visit her with my mom several times it was always a joy, what a great time we would have to missed her when she moved. Love,

    To Jane and family,
    I worked with Jackie at MFC bank in the ’70’s and it was always a joy. She was a lot fun and a ray of sunshine. She never complained when I asked her look up any history on an account I needed or make a last minute deposit for a customer. Jackie always spoke highly of all her children. It was a pleasure to work with and know her. Our deepest sympathies to all of you.
