Hey, it is Odie writing to you today from gorgeous Colorado. We are having a super time with Pastor James McCoy and family! They are actually extended family members. We have not crossed paths with them often over the years so it has been especially good to catch up with them this week!
Wednesday evening my Mom's first cousin Jackie passed away. Jackie was a precious person. In her 38 years of life she faced many struggles and she was a trooper!
Our last time seeing Jackie was at tent revival in Waynesville back in May. I am so thankful we were able to see her then. She called me India and I loved being with her. Jackie always brightened my day.
I believe Jackie is now in Heaven free from all the sickness that has plagued her life. We will miss her smiling face! I can not wait to see the completely healed Jackie in Heaven someday. I keep thinking of the song "On The Other Side of Time". Below is a link to the song sang by Gordon Mote.
Thanks to my cousin Courtney for sending me the next two pictures.
One of Jackie's favorite people was my Uncle Danny Morgan. Uncle Danny could always make Jackie laugh.
A favorite family memory is from Thanksgiving 2011. Here is the link to our blog post from that Thanksgiving. Uncle Danny was serenading Jackie operatic style. She was rolling with laughter! Thankfully we caught it on video. The video most likely will not play on iPad or iPhone.
Please keep my Aunt Coleen and her family in your prayers! Our hearts are heavy for them during this difficult time! We will always love and miss Jackie!
