    She was always a very lovely woman with lots of heart. Sorry she is gone and she will be missed. My prayers to the family.

    Mrs. Jacks was the closest thing I had to a second mom growing up. I spent many days of my early teens hanging out at her house with her son Chris, whom remains my longest friendship to date. I had not seen her for about 25 years but one day last year she walked in the room where I was standing and asked me with a smile what I was up to, as if it had only been a day or two. I hold a lot of good memories from those early days at her home, going to church, going to the mall. While her generosity to her congregation was well known, the true example of her faith was her eagerness to help those who had fallen on hard times. There is no question her passing is felt through those who have survived her.
