    I will miss Jackie she was like a true sister to me rather than sister inlaw. I know she is in a better place now and will not suffer anymore. I think the first time I ever went to Jackie's house where she lived with her mother and father she turned on some music and danced for us. She did love to dance. Praying for the family.
