Jackie, daughter, sister, Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, friend.

March 13, 2016 at 10:53am, my Mom took her last Earthly breath and began Life Eternal as I held her and named all her babies. She fought hard to stay with us for as long as she could. But alas it was time for this chapter of this Mother/Daughter/Granddaughter Adventure to close and for my Dad to have his Sweetheart back as she carried through her recent promise to 'be there in two days'. "Me, too!" has joined not only 'that very attractive Man', but her sister Merilyn, her parents, and a host of many others who have gone before and loved her dearly.

This woman of Great Faith gave us all an example of love and kindness. She left behind some very empty hearts, an extremely quiet home, her final smile when told that "Melissa and Parker are on their way and will be here soon!" And a reminder to "Always keep your fork. The best is yet to come!"

Hey Dad! I hope I have completed my assignment well that you tasked me with earnestly in 2008, start date, 2011. May my finished project far outweigh any of my hastily 'sort of' completed Confirmation papers from back in the day. ;-) I return her to you. Would you please dance with her around the Heavens on this her Celebration Day? Thank you for picking me to be your daughter. I'll see you when it's my turn.

But first, would you mind helping me find a new job? This one is stamped 'completed'.

Love you both to Heaven and back. Momma, what an amazing life you have had! Daughter, Sister, Wife, Auntie, Mother, Grandma, Great Grandma, Favorite Jam Taste Tester, Servant of our Lord and Savior.

Jacqueline Charlotte Brown Fuller. December 1, 1927-March 13, 2016.
