Celebrating the life of Jacqueline Ann "Jackie" Eldred
Thank you for signing Jacqueline Ann "Jackie" Eldred's Guestbook
So sorry for your loss. Just hearing about Jackie- I worked with her for a number of years and she was always a joy. Good sense of humor; loved her children dearly. Please remember Revelation 21:3-4 which gives us hope of our loved ones future. It states that “death will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry’s nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”. Let that thought be your guide knowing that she is now at peace and your hope for yourself and for your family is to hold her again.

So glad God allowed our paths to cross. Haven't known Jackie but a few years but she touched my life and I'll miss her. She made the world a better place.

I was a child when I last met Jackie and Donny. But I remember visiting their home in Vermont and playing LEGOs for the first time. A small thing but I credit my current obsession with my seasonal LEGO Christmas Village to them both. :) I also remember she was my very first lesson on how being a mom sometimes involves sacrifice. As a mom now I completely understand. But when we are children our world is much smaller until we see it through the role models around us. I was so happy to reconnect with her on Facebook several years ago and I'm very sad I will no longer have that connection to her. Her facebook posts showed a happy grandma living life to the fullest and she will be missed. My sincerest condolences to her loving family.

Tyler and Mat...there are no words I can say to make this any easier for you except know that you made your Mom the happiest person having you men as her sons. She lived for her family and I am so proud to say she was my big sister. I learned at a very young age what a hero was, she stepped in as my Mom when she passed and I was only 16. She taught me what strength was and how to survive. She helped shape me into the woman I am and proud to say we are so much alike its uncanny. Never had a bad moment between us and our bond will never be broken...my heart is full of love for her, but hurting for the loss of her. I will miss her daily phone calls, her laughter, and strength but will follow in her footsteps and make her proud to call me her Baby Sister Robin.
