I came to know Jackie through her regular visits to the Adoration Chapel at SLDM. A friendly and kind person, Jackie was always someone you could depend on. I have missed not seeing her in the Chapel or at Mass but I know she is now happy with our Lord. Please accept my condolences.
Peace and love to your family. Long time neighbors Mayer family. Many memories and laughter with you mom♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
