I will carry in my heart many memories of the Loving, Caring,  Advise Giving, Always Happy and Smiling No Matter the Situation Jackie who truly lived for the happiness of her 4 children forever. I am at a complete loss for words when i think of the Kind, Outgoing, Always Willing to Help, Shy at Times Ruben who at 16 was just starting to experence Life, Relationships and the Freedom to find out who he was, what  he liked or disliked and what path he was going to venture on in this one life he was given that ended so soon.

I am mother to 9 year old Nadine Rodriguez. Jackie was Nadines Aunt and Ruben was her cousin. I had to be the one that broke this tragic news to her, how do you explain to a 9 yr old that tomorrow is never promised to anyone and that only God knows why people leave at the times they due. It was the most painful conversation ive had with her.... To me this is still a dream and by the quite blank expression Nadine held im almost certain its a dream to her too.  So with discussion Nadine and I decided to make This Page not only to help the Contreras family with funeral costs but also to help the 3 Beautiful children that are now without a Mother and Older Brother Emily, Jesse Jr and Jaylene. So Please Donate Share the Link Pass On the Message Because   ANYTHING can and will help Thank You and it is very Appreciated.
