    Jackie you were such an amazing soul. You treated me like your own daughter for almost 5 years. You showed and taught me things that I had no idea about. You were such a huge part of my life and I’m so blessed to have the memories I have of you. I really wish you could’ve met my daughter… Thank you for everything you did for me and I won’t ever forget you. Rest in love and peace💕
