    Jackie was our neighbor for many, many years. My childhood memories are of him singing in his yard. Always friendly and happy. And most of all he looked after our elderly mom after our dad passed away. He was a blessing to our family and kept touch with mom with a servants heart. I am heart broken to hear this, but I know he would tell you he is in a better place. Rest in peace.

    So many memories of this precious man in my life. I grew up being loved on by his parents, and him and his sister Sue. The world is a little darker without his bright smile and great hugs. Love you Jackie Meeker, may you rest in peace.
