    Dear family,
    My deepest condolences to you, her children, and to your aunts, Elaine and Janice.
    Although time and distance made contact difficult, her memory has not dimmed. “Jackie” was always beautiful in features as well as in personality. Her loss, I know, will be felt forever.

    With caring,

    Cousin Ken Proffitt, Worcester, MA
