    Dear Emil, Jackie, Doug, Mike and family, Our deepest sympathy goes out to each of you on the death of your
    beloved Jackie. Seems on Tuesday, I was thinking of calling her to say “hope to see you at YTRC dinner in December”.
    Seems only yesterday, we meet in 1976 waiting for our daughters to finish their dance class. All these years, I will miss
    her and that joyful laugh. May love live on forever in each memory. Joann & Charles Richaardson & Volpe family
