    I was so saddened to hear of Jackie’s passing. What a dear person she was! Many years ago, I volunteered with Jackie at numerous Humane Society fundraisers. She was always upbeat and such a dedicated worker. I don’t know how she did it all. At the time, she was employed in a physically-demanding job, she volunteered for the H.S., and was usually caring for someone (human or furry) at home. I truly admired her and wished that I could be more like her.

    I will always remember Jackie. She was a bright spirit and will be missed very much.

    My deepest sympathies go out to all of her loved ones.
