I remember Jackie as being quiet and shy in Cosmetology class, but she would also get the giggles.

I knew Jackie in school, but not very well. In 1970 I married a Midland boy and it turned out Jackie was his cousin. She actually died giving birth to her son, Sean. Her family adored her and she was missed by everyone. Her parents lovingly raised Sean in the home Jackie grew up in. I guess God needed an angel and selected her.

Jackie and I were best friends all through Junior High and High School. She married John Wright; had a son, Sean, on May 29, 1970; and died from complications of child birth.
Jackie was the kind of friend that everyone should have. I miss her dearly!
