Thank you Aunt Jackie for everything! From my boys to myself, all that you have taught us, and supported us with, just taking us in as you would. I miss just hearing you say "Hey" or ask "How the boys doing?" I surely will miss my cucumber salad, greens, how you fixed your corn and that sweet tea! The final days I had with you I will cherish forever, especially when I left to go home you would always say "I love you" and "be careful" and I would say the same back to you and tell you "see you tomorrow!" Rest peacefully in heaven Auntie Love you always, Your special neice and nephews, Tanisha, AiJioun, Adonia
