  1. Dearest Aunt Jackie – we know you are at peace, and have joined our loved ones that have left us before, and they have been waiting for you on the other shore with open arms for the party they have planned for you. We are the sad ones left behind. You had one great “Ta Da!” moment at Jordan’s wedding, and now you have the best “Ta Da!” moment ever. When I am with your kids and grandkids soon, we’ll have a great party and you will be with us. I still want to have your style when I grow up.
    Lovingly, Gerri Lyn, Lee & Dee.
