Jacqui was a patient in my dental practice for many years. Over the years she became more than a patient and was a good friend. I always looked forward to seeing her and giving her a hug. We shared the same sense of humor and she was a master at sending me just the right emailed jokes and cartoons. Everyone at Kennett Dental will miss her but none more than me. My deepest sympathy to the entire family.

Jacqui was a great neighbor with whom I always found energetic and interesting conversations! She was to-the-point and had a good, dry sense of humor. I will miss her in our community, for sure. I am sending my thoughts and prayers to Fred and the Clemens family.
