Saturday March 19th

Yesterday's funeral honoured Jacqueline very well. I was told that this was the largest event ever held inside the church. 300 people attended the ceremony at the 150-seat church. Please don't tell the fire marshall. From what I understand this figure does not even include those who sadly could not be accommodated. I hear some guests celebrated the event together at the Tim Horton's down the road. The Jacquie I know would have laughed in utter disbelief and found it completely complimentary.

We sincerely regret the church could not accommodate everyone that wanted to be there. Having the funeral at St. Anne's was among the few preparations Jacqueline discussed.

If you would like the photo slideshow DVD as shown during visitation or photo prints, feel free to request a free copy from any of us. Please donate to one of the designated charities or just give blood. (To the Red Cross, not to us ;) )

The guestbook will remain open indefinitely, as will our doors.

Jackie passed away peacefully around 8PM last night at her parents' home in London. She was comfortable and surrounded by loved ones. Her husband Doug, in particular, ushered her through with inconceivable strength, compassion, and love. I will be forever grateful for that.

She will be sorely missed and warmly remembered.

Some pictures are available after several requests. It's possible some people might not want to see pictures of her at the hospital, so be aware there are some very recent shots. But she looks great to me :) Pictures.
