Jackie I find it so very hard to believe That you have gone and I must grieve; I call out your name -- you answer not, And I look for you in every familiar spot. Everything seems so strange and surreal, I ask everyday is it a dream or real? Where are the soft brown eyes of affection? Where is the laughter and talk of childhood reflection? Where is the loving care when I was sick or sad? Where is the generous soul for which I was glad? Where is the forgiving and understanding heart? Where are the bonds that were there from the start? I miss all the little ways you showed you cared, For there were so many good moments we shared; Looking back on my life's assorted scenes, I realized you taught me what love truly means; You were my trusted confidante and best friend, On whose loving support I could always depend. I look at your smiling face in all my photos; Memories flood my mind as I touch the mementos From the happy times you and I have had, But now these bring tears and make me sad; For the time together went by in a wink, Life was not as long as we'd like to think. Sometimes memories bring comfort and make me smile, But there are times when grief takes over for a while; Friends offer gentle words and prayers to console, And tell me what has happened to your loving soul; Can it be true what they say of time healing grief? Is it enough when they say death has given you relief? Can we believe what others say of a better place, Where our beloved ones rest in God's warm embrace? I should be happy you're free of pain and sorrow, And rejoice that you'll always have tomorrow. How can I then be so heartbroken and selfishly cry, Return to me from that peaceful place where you lie!" Now I look down at your name on a cold hard stone That says little of the loving light you have shone; It tells nothing of the wonderful person you were, And only serves to remind me of the painful loss I endure; But I know your kind soul wants no tears or pain, Instead you'd want warm memories and love to remain. Although I cry and stand grief-stricken by your grave, I promise not to forget the loving memories you gave; But still I miss you so very much my sister dear, And your caring words I once again long to hear; My heart's only solace is one day I will see you as before, Beckoning me to come join you on that white distant shore.

One year, it just doesn't seem possible. It seems like yesterday. You just never get used to losing a best friend. I will celebrate your life, remember your laughter, remembering your humor. One positive thing that came out of your passing, in my grief, I turned closer to God, who has helped me understand, he has a plan, and you are part of his grand plan. I anxiously wait for the day we are reunited in heaven. I love you.

Jackie you were the best thing to happen to me. Enjoyed the cruise we took together along with family members. Had a great time and would of done alot more with you. I remember when we first met and you didn't like the dog I had at the time. We had some rocky times to begin with but we made it thru and enjoyed a life we were proud of and the times that were trying to both of us. Your time was to short but you will always be on my mind and in my heart, Love you still and will see you when we meet again.

My mammaw, was amazing she was my inspiration. I love her so much.. I lay in bed and cry because I can't have my mammaw back. She is and will always be my favorite person. I just live day to day. I miss her smile, her voice. She came and visited me in my dream the other night, it was so great to see her and have coffee with her at her home back in waynesfeild. I will forever love and miss you mammaw ❤️

I miss our daily calls and I see your smile often,you are always in my heart. And I am thankful for all our time together only wishing every day for more. I love you and we will meet again on The New Planet.

I first remember meeting Jackie when she worked at gas station/store in West Minster years ago , I knew her names from my dad telling me about her , but didn't have a face. I introduced myself then later because of fb and family reunions I was able to get to know her better. (I at times thought we resembled each other for some reason .) I will miss her smile, her wit. How she lovingly picked on her sisters especially Lynnette. She had a BEAUTIFUL heart Forever loved Jackie❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Jackie, my sister, my best friend, You may be out of my sight, but you will never be out of my heart. I may not see your face, but I will always remember your smile. I may never hear your voice again, but you will forever whisper, in my ear. I never got to say goodbye to you, or tell you how much you meant to me. One day we will meet at heaven's gate and I will be with you again, and this time it will be, forever.
