    My Mom,

    Jacqueline was a tiny girl with strawberry blond hair, fair skin, and beautiful angelic features with freckles on her face.

    She became strong minded woman with a stubborn character yet her heart was kind and loving. She gave this love and dedication to her mother and father, to her brothers and sisters, to her children and grandchildren.

    For her children she was our protector, our teacher, our nurturer. She was a wonderful Mother. And when her children grew up and they had children of their own, her love and dedication continued.
    She loved all of her grandchildren; she held them, she laughed with them, she played with them, she walked beside them, and taught them right from wrong.

    I miss you already Mom. Forever I will love you; forever your family will grow.
    Your loving daughter, Brenda Lee
