Like all of you, Fran and I were shocked and devastated by the loss of our dear Jackie, who we adored. We can’t imagine our lives without her, but yet she would be the first to say “Carry on”. We are thankful and blessed to have known her and to have experienced her caring, loving, giving soul. 

It is notable that Jackie died while doing her favorite thing on earth, being with and loving on and no doubt hugging on, her beautiful family!

We can only imagine the joyful class reunion upstairs when we will each get to see her and hug her once again!

Rest In Peace dear friend.

What a shock.   Jackie held us all together; she will be sorely missed.   Prayers for her family during this difficult time.

So shocked to hear of dearest Jackie’s passing.  So glad she was with family. My fondest thoughts of Jackie have come from our few emails these last few years and the encouragement she gave me during my recent battle with cancer. She was my “chemo hero” and I will miss her council this during this next battle. Rest In Peace dear friend.

    Shocked...devastated....What Jackie meant to me is what the sun means to the earth.  She was probably one of the most "pure" friends I've ever had, ever known ! ! !       She encouraged me, made me want to be a better person, not  because of what she said or did, but  because of who she was. An angel here on earth, now where she really belongs, Heaven !  

     She called me "BroBeau" and she was "SisJ" to me.  She always let me know when I made her howl with laughter over some silly story I wrote. She said she and her co workers couldnt work they were laughing so hard.  No finer compliment have I ever received than making her laugh.  Whatever I wrote, she was always on my mind...."will SisJ find this funny"......I truly hope so....I also hope that she knew how much I loved her, how much she was loved by all whose lives she touched by just being there, being "SisJ".....

    They say you only "pass this way once in life", so make it count.  Jackie did just that, "made it count"!    As far as  passing this way once, I dont think that is correct, because Jackie will be "passing this way" in my life, and the lives of all her friends and classmates and family,    forever!  

     There is a huge hole in my heart from the loss of my Beloved Cooper, and seems now, the rest of it has been ripped out with the loss of "SisJ"....

RIP Jackie. As I read through all of the wonderful comments on Jackie's life and Friendship that we all have had with her leaves a very big hole in our lives. I am so happy she passed away with Family around her. We all have benefited from this website and forum. I am deeply hoping someone will continue to carry the torch for Jackie. To all my classmates I share this unhappiness with you. And to Jackie's family, we all know she is in a better place .

Oh dear!....Just read the Forum and shocked as well..

Honored to have known her, and chatted with her throu some of my "stuff" in emails.  Everyone has said it best, Jackie was an extraordinary "gift"( and Pres. Bush's example of Points of Jackie exhibited  a true point of light that shown brightly.throughout her lifetime.  Condolences and Blessings go our to her family.

This news is so heart breaking. Reading your loving words and thoughts of Jackie and the example she set for being a loving, caring friend has given me comfort. She was fun loving too and the thought of her dancing in heaven like Elaine cracked me up. She is so special and I will miss her. Rest In Peace Jackie.

Something I just noticed and it does not surprise me in the least, but go to the “In Memory” section of this website, and look at the photo of the candles and the Quote Jackie selected for the heading!

Leave it to Her to present us all with that one last Gift!

We just lost the glue that bound the class of 64. Jesus please find a high resting place for our Dear Jackie so that she might look down on us and know that we will carry on. We will all miss her, but we know she is being care for by you R.I.P. Dear Jackie. Robbie

Jackie was so amazing and such a joy to so many people.  I look forward to her celebration of life tomorrow and know she will be smiling from her new heavenly home. She left a beautiful model of how we should move forward in our own lives. Reading what her classmates have posted will offer so much support and comfort to her loving family. God bless them all.

Wendy Sherrill (Carter)

Yes, she certainly was the glue that helped hold our class together.  Her absence feels so real, even from this far away.  Praying that her family and friends are brought comfort by all the wonderful memories we have.  I can see her smile and hear her laugh as I write this.

I am so saddened and shocked to hear of Jjackies passing, The last thing she posted was abour my wife Linnys passing.  I will miss her so much. She was such a caring person. She encourged me to come to the reunions and i am so glad i did.  Got to see old friends and enjoy memories. Our class has a lot of great people in it and Jackie was one of the best. Even tho i had to come to the last reunion by myself Jackie was there to greet me with a smile. I will miss you dearly rip jackie

I know that Jackie was an encourager but she was more.  She truly was an intercessor  thank you Jackie for creating a website and encouraging us to stay together.  I love you, Jackie and will continue to remember your grace.

Gloria Hornick (Walker)

Like many others on here, I was touched by Jackie through the years.  Starting as Girls Scouts together in elementary school, she was always a special person.  This website is amazing, and she did such a great job of supporting us all through the years, even though she was going through so much herself.  Thank you, Jackie, for being you!  We will miss you, and heaven has gained another angel.
