  1. Jackie was the moon and stars to so many of us. My profound sorrow on the loss of both your parents. I am at peace that Dave and Jackie are back together as they truly belong. I have so many wickedly funny stories that Granny told. Her wisdom enormous and never afraid to throw a zinger your way if she thought it was warranted. I loved her and can’t believe she is gone.As I said the sky was a little dimmer when Jackie left us. I wish I could be there to say goodbye this incredible woman. God Bless Jackie and Dave and all of you. Much love, hugs, and prayers. Love you,
    May Weger

  2. Kate, Sorry we couldn’t be there. Sending prayers of peace for your family. Cath and Mike Stegeman

  3. My thoughts and prayers are will all the Schippers and Liautaud Family. I only spoke to cousin Jackie once but it was a conversation worth remembering. She told me family stories that mean the world to me. She had me laughing for a good hour. I am so glad that I have a signed copy of her book. I will always treasure it. Hugs to all my cousins. -Q

  4. We saw the beautiful funeral on the internet and it brought tears to our eyes. What a way to celebrate her life with that wonderful music and procession.

    Our sympathy to all of you. That’s a lot of loss in a matter of a few months. BIG, BIG hugs. Loved the song: “Will/May the Circle Be Unbroken”
