You’re leaving us was so sudden and we are all in shock. There is much sadness but I want to remember the happy times with you. Your little sister, Carolyn is my best friend and when we were teenagers she was my partner crime. As a result I spent a lot of time with her at your house. You always welcomed me with open arms, you always turned a blind eye to my cheeky smokes! You always looked the other way when we went out dressed in our new romantic gear or some other ridiculous attire, took us shopping, let us buy high heels, bought us lunch and just generally looked out for us. I will never forget that. Who else would take two adventurous 16 year olds with them on holiday to Spain but you did and we had an absolute ball. We never stopped laughing the whole 2 weeks.
Rest in peace Jackie, please look over Stephanie and the boys, they will need you to guide them through the difficult times. They loved you so much. You will be missed more than you know. Much love Julie x
