    I remember Jackie when she went to Sacred Heart in Thayer. I got her to give me some of her recipes. I especially remember we had Prayer Partners and
    Jackie had my sister, Dolly. Dolly had heart valve surgery and passed on. Jackie cried because she had been praying for her recovery. Jackie was a dear
    person and will be remember.
