I saw Jackie's announcement in the paper today. It was a beautiful tribute for a beautiful and amazing woman. My heart is heavy. Jackie and I had a special connection. Both our lives changed forever in 2010. Jackie my friend, you will be sadly missed. 

Please remember to donate to cancer research.

Jackie left us yesterday and some of the mom's placed this pretty basket of flowers in honour of her at one of our picnic tables as she use to often come for lunch and join us here. Life is so not fair sometimes! I am really going to miss her! DAMN YOU CANCER!
