On March 7, 2016 Jacquelyn Williams Egan passed away... She was a Wonderful Neighbor and Friend of our Family... and she will be sorely missed. I knew of her Son Stephen killed in the line of Duty Police officer, but I never knew of her Husband and 3 other Children killed in an Auto accident. The "Jackie" I knew never showed any Bitterness, only Love and Kindness to my Mother, her Neighbor and my Children... Her last years have been filled with sickness, but Jackie never stood still long enough to be Depressed about it. Rip Jackie, We love you.
