  2. My deepest sympathies go out to Jackie, Frank, and all the family for the loss of their mother and grandmother. My prayers and thoughts are with you now during this very difficult time. A mother’s love never dies, but will stay with you for the rest of your lives. I know Jackie was a great daughter to her mom and will live on sharing the love and values that her mother taught her. Sincerely, Donna Warner

  3. Dear Jacke and Family, I am filled with sorrow for I empathize with you and remember the pain and heartache that comes with the passing of a much beloved person who was in your life and in your heart. No words will take the grief away; rather, embrace the grief and let it help you to heal in whatever way possible. Cherish the memories, and know that she is not far from you, ever. God bless and watch over you, always. Peace be with you.
