    Jacque was right when she took pride in her God-given talent for praise. She was a great singer, whether as a soloist or with her sisters and nieces. I’m glad for the hours and years spent with her as schoolkids and Camp Fire girls. I’m grateful, too, for the hours spent in late life reminiscing together with her. I deeply love Jacque in the way that will never die.
