Dear ones,

Sad to see I got home from Findlay (treatments) too late to come by, and I have treatment starting at 10 AM in Findlay tomorrow, Thursday, at the time of his service. I had so hoped I could be there with you! I love you guys so much, you and John are family to me. While I'm in chemo at 10:10 AM tomorrow, I will be praying, remembering, laughing and crying...with you. All my love, Jackie
