Hi Kim, I just found out that Ms. Jackie passed on. My heart broke silently as I sat at my desk reading the Daily World Obituaries. At the same time, a huge smile spread across my face as I began recalling all the conversations your Mom had with me during the most challenging & difficult times of my life. She always knew where and how to push my smile button no matter what was going on. She has never ever nor have you ever left my thoughts and prayers. I know she is in Heaven. Big Hugs coming your way Kim... Love ya, Kelly xo
