    Jackie/Stacy/Fred and Family:
    I wish I had had the honor of meeting such a wonderful woman. What I have heard and read about her has all been positive and refreshing, knowing that our daughter would go to see her friend Stacy all of the time. Our daughter Jennifer had nothing but positive words about Jackie. Sorry that we did not meet. I am sure that if I had met you, we would of been friends from the start just like our daughters are. Our family were so sorry to hear that you had passed at such a young age, but we wanted to let you know that you have raised an amazing daughter and your grandson is such an amazing little man. We know that you will be looking down from heaven and taking care of your family from up above. You sounded like an Angel here and now you are an Angel from above. R.I.P. Jackie. Hope all your suffering is gone.

    A Tribute to my sister, Jackie –
    It feels like months but it has only been weeks,
    And yet that is still too long.
    I still love you the same as if you were still here with me, laughing during the good times and crying during the bad ones.
    I miss being able to call you any time and spend hours talking about everything under the sun.
    As children we were practically joined at the hip,
    But we grew up and grew apart, as most siblings do.
    We had our own set of friends and our own set of goals for our lives, but that still didn’t change the fact that we were sisters.
    There was nothing that I wouldn’t do for you and nothing that you wouldn’t do for me.
    I always wish you were still here with me enjoying life,
    But I can understand why God would want such a beautiful angel on his side from now until eternity.
    Just know that I love and miss you,
    And this is the tribute to you, my sister, Jackie XOXO

    Auntie Jackie! We met in the 80’s, I loved you as soon as I met you, we both liked a laugh and a smoke, then little Stacy was in our wedding party and then we spent the summers at Lyn and Lens pool with all those babies running around, such good times. We will miss your laughter, gleaming smile and witty humour. Love from Cheryl, Kevin, Adam, Kristine and Rebecca.

    The best news Guy and I ever received was the day we found out that you could take care of our little girl. I’ve never met anyone who loves children as you did. The love, the care, the laughter, the animation and guidance. OH! what a lucky girl Keilah is to have had you in her life… We as parents able not worry as we went through our daily routines knowing that she was safe, happy and being taken care of in the same way she would be if she where at home. We can’t thank you enough,… All I can say is “What a gift you had” Thank you for the Opera… Keilah won’t like this but she still sings Opera (nothing wrong with that LOL !!) You’re love for life and people and of course your contagious laugh will be with us forever. As much as you will be missed we are grateful that you are no longer suffering. Angel that you are you now have your wings… Love Diane Guy & Keilah Hugs to Fred Stacy Kevin Joshua and Family. XXXXXXXX

    Jackie impacted the lives of everyone she knew. With her radiant smile and tremendous heart- she had so much love to give. I believe Jackie came into our lives for a reason. She was there the day I was born when my mom brought me home from the hospital, she was there every time my mom needed her. She watched over me like an angel on earth, and always made me feel like I was a part of her family, even when mine was breaking. She taught me to be respectful and thankful for what I did have rather than dwelling on what was missing. I am forever grateful to her for that. I loved Jackie like my own mother and I will always feel that love for her in my heart. All of the great qualities in Jackie have rubbed off on those whose lives she touched and will continue to live on in her family and loved ones. Thank you Jackie for having this impact on all of us, I will never stop missing you.
    Love you forever,
    Cathy

    Jackie you will be missed by so many people, Twin Pines neighbors, family, friends and aquaintances. I wish I had the chance to know you better. We did have a couple of short chats while you were out scooting around on your Jackie mobile and you were very funny and pleasant to talk to. I remember you speaking highly of your husband, daughter and your pride and joy grandson, Joshua. Even though you were very sick I never would have known it because of your upbeat and happy personality. Why is it we wait until people are gone and then we say Gee I wish I knew that person better. Rest in peace free from pain. Lynn (6 Main)

    Or though we hardly saw much of each other, You were the wife of my youngest brother. I have never heard a word spoken in any negative sense, so I am sure your will be missed by many. You have shown me the way of how to bear the pain some of us have to go through. You were always welcomed to my home, as is my brother. You are gone but not forgotten. I would like to offer my condolences to all of your family and friends, and your will be greatly missed.

    I will always remember her laugh.. & the way she could literally light up a room. Jackie was so many things to so many people; She was a mother to many. Jackie’s hugs were the best.. she always held on that second longer, and really really hugged you. Jackie was so approachable, and non judgmental, you could tell her anything! I will miss the way she’d knowingly look at you when you were doing something wrong.. and you’d laugh at her cause you knew she was the only one that noticed.. I loved that. I will always miss her throw your head back slap your knee laugh.. and it was definitely contagious. Jackie I will always think of you. I will always miss you.. & I will always always love you. Thank you so much.. for everything you brought to my life!! xo

    Well mom…I still do not believe you are gone from my life. My life will never be the same without you in it. You were and always will be a huge part of my life. You were the best mom anybody could have asked for. You did everything for me, protected me, held me, wipes my tears when I was hurting, treated me when I was sick and my list can go on. I grew up and made it through school with your guidence. Then I grew up and started a family of my own and you were there in a heartbeat to help me and teach me how to be a mom. No matter how sick or hurting you were you would toss that to the side and help me. You were a huge part on the raising of Joshua through all his baby days and then the potty training, his chronic health problems etc…I would not have been able to raise my baby without you. Now I have no choice but to carry on without you and figure out how to raise my boy without your guidence. I will have to remember all your wonderfull motherly skills and love and guidence and use it to raise Joshua into a fine young respectable man. I miss you like crazy and you have taken part of my heart with you. With you taking part of my heart means you now have a complete one.
    No matter how much I am aching to have you back, I am very happy for you as you are no longer suffering and trying to breath. You no longer have only half of your heart working and your cancer is all gone and your lungs are new full and fresh. You can have a great sleep wich you never could do. So the pains I am having from a loss of you being here I know are nothing even close to the pain you were in so I cannot complain.
    All I can say is I love you like crazy ♥ and forever. I know you will watch down on Joshua and I and dad and keep us safe and guide us in the right direction.
    R.I.P. mom..you are now an angel is heaven.
