    Aunt Jackie,

    May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand.

    Aunt Peggy, Denise, Lisa, and Debbie: I am sending you a hug and my love through this note.
    Special thoughts and heartfelt prayers are being sent to you and your families during this time of sorrow.

    You are ALL forever and always in my heart, prayers and wonderful memories.

    I am so saddened to hear about Mrs. Jackie. I will always remember how kind and funny she was. She was my “2nd” mother since I spent almost as much time at the Parrish house as I did at our house growing up. I even remember asking her to sew some pajamas for my roly poly because my mom said it could not stay in the house without them.

    Debbie, Peggy, Lisa and Denise- please know that you are all in my thoughts.

    All my love,
