3 Condolences for Jacqueline E. Nye

  • Beth,
    I am so glad I got to know your mother through you the past few years. She was a sweet lady who really enjoyed her store in Delaware City. She will be missed by those locals and many others.

  • Dearest Beth,
    I “met” your mother on the internet a long time ago, porphyria brought us together and we exchanged experiences from time to time.

    To me, she was a very sweet and caring lady, at one time she did intend to visit the UK and I was looking forward to meeting her, sadly that wasn’t meant to be.

    Jacquie (Jackie) put out her hand and touched the face of God.

    My deepest sympathy to you and the rest of your family, may your Mum Rest in Peace.

    With lots of love, Mary <3 <3

  • Beth,
    We are so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. She will be missed by many. Our prayers are with your family.
