To Jackie I miss hearing your laughter and the very way you spoke when you were joking or just saying Hi, I miss those calls asking me a question regarding your computer or anything else you felt I had knowledge of but most of all I miss those birthday celebrations for our neice's and nephew's and those special bar-b-ques that will go on but will have a vacant spot because you will not be there, we were family long before our siblings got together we became family in Acorn growing up and experienceing life you and Kim were sisters in every sense of the word but you and Antionette had that special closeness that only blood can have. Your life was cut short by some stupid act of violence and your sister has made a vow not to let it go unsolved we will not let you be another number in the rising death do to violence in this city. If any other victims families read this I urge you to get on OPD, the press, the city council let them know that we are not going to stand for the way they are treating these acts of violence.
