Brenda - I am so sorry for your loss. You and Jackie became my "work friends" at Fred's when I was Operations Manager there. Your weekly visits were a treasure, and Jackie's big smile and humorous exchange of insults with me always made my day. I last saw Jackie at Ingles on Sunday August 12th, as I was leaving and you two were arriving. Jackie and I exchanged our obligatory niceties, and good-humored insults, as usual. I am so sorry that he is gone now, but so happy that I saw him again, at least one last time. I'll miss his smile and will think of him often.
