God, Am I going to miss Jackie.!!
Perhaps it was because we had the same first names, or the fact that she was so tall and i was so short and when she hugged me it felt like i was being wrapped in love, or it was her giggle, her genuine warmth, or her outright honesty, intense in love and loyalty. There are very few people I trust in life, but Jackie was one of them.
Rest in peace sweet cousin, pray for us and wait for us to join you.
love always, Jacqueline Marraccini Crispino
