  • I remember the first time I met you 10 years ago, I was immediately drawn to your lively energy and funny sense of humor. Ever since, you have been a big part of Walter’s and my life. The three of us did a lot together—eating out at Restaurants, shopping, mani-pedi, massage, and hanging out at your beautiful Condo that you enjoyed so much. We really miss having you around with us!! You always used to say, “I’m not here for a long time. I’m here for a good time.” And they sure were good times every time we’re together!! Rest in peace, dear friend. You are home with the Lord and all your loved ones before you. We love you and we miss you tremendously!!

  • Jackie, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Fondly, Sue
