First week's holiday ended on a very sad note-remembering Jacky Ingram
We met up again at Millington primary School 40yr celebration and she was planning on a reunion meal with old friends but it wasn't to be. We had quite a chat about our past and the time between when we had been inseparable. She was very close to her family and loved her son more than herself but then that was Jacqueline always thinking of others.We loved being out and about on our rollerboots and when we couldnt be outdoors we were scheming indoors. We produced a magazine for our community "The rectory Gazette" and were encouraged by her sister Karen. I think we had about 6 customers!!!LOL. We took turns typing on my old Imperial typewriter. She came on holiday with us and we went to the Girl's Brigade together. Jacky became a christian in those days but her life started to take a different path to mine. I left home to start nursing and she continued with her education. She became involved in Reiki and holistic healing which unfortunately did not give her any benefit in the end. My hope is that her early faith was sincere and that some day we will laugh again together. Prayers go out to her mum,son and wonderful sisters Karen and Susan.
