  3. Jacquie was a good friend and loved her family. I remember her as a young Mother, so happy with her Kenneth and Becky. She was devoted to Perry and loved his family as her own. She joked once if she ran away, she would go to Perry's parents! Our children were babies and toddlers together. I still smile when I think of my son calling Becky Pecky. Kenneth and Chris have grown into fine family men and I still get to see them together. What a treat to see their little ones playing together and having just as much fun. Jacquie would be beaming.I hope she is now having a wonderful time in Heaven, surrounded by all her cats and piles of books. She might be chatting with Agatha Christie.
