I just learned, about two days ago, that someone very special to me passed away at the way-too-young age of 34.
Her name is Jackie, and she was the walking embodiment of the “burning your candle at both ends” expression. She was never still, never calm, never quiet.
A loyal and wonderful person, there isn’t anything she wouldn’t sacrifice or do for someone she cared about. And she cared about a lot of people. She had way more energy than one person should be able to physically contain.
She was able to take a few scraps of clothing, or even non-clothing items, and put together something fabulous. An awesome sense of style and creativity.
She was friendly, outgoing, funny and loving. Fiercely protective and loyal to those she loved.
Jackie, I hope you’re able to see how important you were to so many people. I don’t know if any of us really made that clear while you were alive.
Rest In Peace. Now you can finally relax and not worry about taking on the problems and needs of everyone around you.
