    My condolences go out to Dana, Alison, Robin and Douglas. Cousin Jackie was such a kind and caring person. What a happy and productive life. I was privileged to have her as my cousin. May God bless her and keep her close to Him in Heaven.

    I can hear her now with her chuckle. I don’t think I ever heard her saying an unkind word. She was always upbeat even though her life was hard at times. She was a few years older than I, but I will miss my sweet cousin.

    Dear Dana, Alison, Robin, and Doug, so sorry about the loss of your mother. I was so happy to have seen her and all of you this past Thanksgiving. What a blessing it was as I had not seen your mother in many years. I can hear her voice and her laugh as I write this. May you all be blessed with the memories of such a wonderful Mom.
