Elaine 'Lainey' Jacko

It is never easy to lose a loved one. Even worse, is when it comes with no warning. Saturday night, the family of Elaina Jacko had their lives turned upside down. Elaina left home with a friend, with every intention to return. Never knowing that would be the last time she would hug her Mama...or the last time she would hold her baby girl. Shortly after, Elaina was involved in a horrific car accident, and for reasons we aren't meant to understand; God called her home. Elaina was 19 years old. Left behind, is her 7 month old baby girl; Izzy. Izzy was Elaina's whole world! As a mother, I can't even bare to imagine losing a child. As a daughter, I can't imagine what life would have been growing up without my Mother. Way too often we take our loved ones for granted! Forgetting, that in a blink of an eye... everything could change! Christmas is supposed to be a joyous time of year, but for the Jacko family it has became a nightmare. On top of losing their loved one, they are faced with funeral expenses, medical expenses, Christmas & their normal everyday expenses. I'm asking all of my friends and family to take a moment, put yourself in this situation and please, PLEASE find it in your heart to help this family! I'm praying that in these moments of sorrow, we can all join in and Bless this family with a Christmas miracle!
