Jackie. Dear Sweet Jackie.
We met Jackie in 2012, she was like a bright light shining everywhere she went. Full of life, so full of life. Her laugh resonates in my head. She was full of ideas, excitement and interested in everything around her. She was spritely and animated, so so animated. I don't know how it is even possible that her mortal light could be so finally extinguished, this is what I find most shocking. I saw her brighten even more when she fell in love with Dai. The two of them were a perfect match. Dai provided stability, guidance, experience, support and most of all love. That love was never-ending. Jackie leaned on Dai until the very end. I have not seen such all-out care, concern and devotion from another human and know that when Jackie met Dai, it was meant to be. Dai, thank-you for being there unconditionally for little Jackie, as she struggled at the end, you provided quiet understanding and support like a Granite Rock. Jackie found peace, joy and comfort in her best friend and love. I believe that Jackie's insistence on getting Mokasin in your lives was her gift to you, leaving a part of her spirit behind as a reminder of the fun, and love you both shared. In speaking with Jackie recently, and understanding her struggles and desperate desire to find peace, I am at ease knowing she has found pure everlasting serenity and is now truly free from anxiety. I see Jackie floating in the wind and soaring in the stars and resting peacefully in her father's arms. I am so happy she got to reconnect with her father's family, it meant the world to her. Jackie adored and respected her mother, I am saddened by the loss Danuta has to face; Jackie was a unique soul, a pixie and she will be near her mom always. She left us behind on earth, but will never leave us in spririt. We can not ever get her back so we must let her go and be free, it is what she wanted, we will love her all the same. Miss you already Jackie - our little bunny! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo Ira Kargel
Danuta, words cannot express the depths of my sorrow for the loss of your beloved daughter; I can only imagine your pain. You are strong and God loves you. Continue to pray for strength. Your parish family will pray for you and Oliver and for the repose of Jacqueline's soul. Much love to you, beautiful lady.
Danuta, Oliver and the entire Gorski Family,
John and I are deeply saddened by your tremendous loss, as is Michael. The Jackie we came to know was caring, gifted with intelligence and curiosity. God Bless.
I want you to know I am reflecting on all the places our paths have intersected over the past few years. First at RPM in the Junction when you were doing some strength training. Then of course at Gears, every Monday morning you were there with your bright eyes to welcome us before we got rid of our pre-spin grouchies. I remember you went beyond the necessary to help me pick out the perfect road bike. And when I fell in the clips you gave me another set of pedals so I could get my game back. You led a spin class that I attended and I was blown away by your leadership skills. Later finding myself on a mat beside you at Breathe yoga and hearing about your plans to travel to jungle retreats. I was admiring of your risk taking and courage. While we had not much time in each moment I could feel your heart of a seeker beating loudly. Thank you for touching me and others in so many ways. I pray you are filled with Loving Kindness, You are well, You are peaceful and at ease, You are happy. You will be missed and mourned and my heart goes out with the same sentiments to all those who love you. Kathy xoxoxox Kathy

Our sympathies and prayers.
