My sympathies to the family. Jackie & I went to Freeburg High together. She was a very special friend while at school. We were also bus mates to & from school. When she had a French test to study for, we would go through questions & answers together. This was a little hard for me, since I wasn't taking French. We worked it out though, & she always did well on her tests. Thought about her often, she will be missed.
