My dearest Jackie, though I didn’t get to know Vaughn really well, I know he made you one happy woman and you made him one happy man. You two deserved each other and loved each other in ways so very special to you both. You may have lost your partner in person, but you will be forever blessed to have him in your heart and soul. And, I know from personal experience that your heart is very large. Vaughn can take up 80% of it but the rest of us still need you too. You are an amazing person and you will see your way through this challenging time because of your family and friends. Vaughn will rest peacefully because he was able to say good bye the only way he knew how to – with you by his side. Celebrate your amazing union and give thanks every day for what this human brought to your life, and the lives of so many others. I love you, and by extension I love Vaughn. I suspect your blue-eyed, handsome man will watch over you forever and a day.

Jackie, I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Vaughn’s passing. Keep the love and memories you shared with him always in your heart to help you through this difficult time. Stay strong, my friend.

I know it has to be extremely hard for everyone with this Covid-19 stuff going on and not being able to have the usual way of saying goodbye with everyone around you.
