  • With all our love, we send our blessings and Ohana aloha to Jackie in heaven -Jim,Luann & Joe, Jim & Donna, Sean, Troy, Devon and Taylor our deepest sympathies. Our fond memories of Jackie was that she had the biggest heart, forgiving spirit, and an open door for everyone. Jackie was like the “beam” on the cross – straight, solid and in the center of everything. The family lost someone special who most turned to for support in everyway. Let us all remind Jim he has family here to support him. We will remember the happy times; such as the Turkey Thanksgiving dinner that burnt up in front of us. The time rabbits ran outside in the yard and the expression of one person. The dinners we had with Chuck “Jim’s brother before his passing” and the good times then. We love and miss you forever Jackie, our Lord has opened His Arms for you in His Mansion. We miss, miss, miss you so much, words cannot express. Mahalo Nui Loa -the Billings family and Kuni
