Jackie’s final prayer for her family and friends… Do not cry for me! Rejoice for me! I’m no longer in pain and I have gained not only my wings but also a brand new body. To my children, even though I’m gone physically, spiritually, I’m still with you all. Remember everything I’ve instilled in you all… Love Mom
