Today friends and family will gather in Wales to remember Jackie.
She left this earth a few days before Christmas to live in her forever home.
The last home on earth was Valentine, a refurbished barge.
Jackie and Chris worked on it for some two years,
then spent two wonderful weeks enjoying their dream boat.
I remember this neighbor and beautiful friend on the M/V Doulos with admiration
for her taste and style, her dignity, wisdom, and devotion to God and family.
As I put away Christmas ornaments I came across a small one
crossstiched by Jackie over 30 years ago.
I am so grateful that this little treasured memory survived fire and water!
Jackie, I so look forward to walking with you in Heaven!
