Tomi Lynn Barrow-Roberts, May 11, 2009 The biggest memory that I have of Jackie, was his huge ammount of love that he had for Christy, and his kids. I had the honor to speak to Jackie on the previous Friday, and something that he said to me was so touching. He told me that he really liked his new job, but hated being away from his family, and it was really getting hard to get used to being away from them. That was the Jackie that I will always remember, his huge love for his family. They were # one to him. Christy there is nothing that I can say to comfort the hurt that you, and your kids are going through. There is onething that you can never forget about Jackie, and that was his love for you'all. I love your family with all my heart, and it was my privledge to get to know Jackie. He will be greatly missed Jan Garza Jan Garza, April 28, 2009 Jackie, You will be greatly missed.
