    Jackie was just like part of our family. I grew up with her and her family was my second family. Our parents were best friends. There are so many countless memories and great times our families have shared together that will never be forgotten. Even though we didn’t talk much over the years, she always stayed in contact with my mother, Mamie Sutton. She was always there when you needed her and would do anything if you asked her. She was a beautiful, spirited individual with a warm and compassionate heart. She will truly be missed. I love you…RIP Jackie. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

      I met Jackie upon her return to work @ Portsmouth Naval(as I had just started) I felt her kindred spirit. We talked and realized we both knew the late Sandra Hartwell. Jackie’s spirit will always resonate with me. To the family no more pain, no more suffering Jackie has reached to where she has strive for and that is to see the master FACE TO FACE. Blessings to you all

    My prayers for Jackie’s family are that memories of her warm your hearts forevermore. I met Jackie at work (NMCP) and didn’t know her well, but we both had infant grandbabies and chatted about them and life from time to time. She was sweet and kind.
