    I know you will miss him . I will remember him as being a happy and kind person. Uncle Jackie did a lot to help me and my husband when he was working at the phone company. God bless you guys.

    Sending healing prayers to all that knew him. He was a wonderful person and I will never forget him stretching out on the floor at Grandmas after Christmas Dinner and Thanksgiving Dinner for his nap.

    I’m shocked and deeply saddened to learn just today of Jackie’s passing. I’m saddened and heartbroken that I didn’t get any notification from the family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
