Dear Gary, Michael and Lauren,
It is with a heavy heart that I offer my condolences to all of you. Jackie fought a courageous and gallant fight. Her bright star extinguished far too soon.
My memories are of our daughters at school, PTA, ITC and games of Bunco! What a beautiful and cheerful disposition.
Her entrance to Heaven surely accompanied by great rejoicing.
For you who are left here, I wish you comfort and peace in these trying times.
All my love,
Leanne Mungenast-Scine

so far away we only see their light long, long after the star itself is gone.
And so it is with people that we loved —
their memories keep shining ever brightly though their time with us is done.
But the stars that light up the darkest night, these are the lights that guide us.
As we live our days, these are the ways we remember.
-- Hannah Senesh
