Aunt Jackie was a beloved, irreplaceable part of our lives and she will be missed beyond measure. She and Uncle Bobby were a source of unwavering support and love for our family.

Mr. Scarborough, Janet, Tod, and Troy. I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many memories of Mrs. Scarborough growing up as Troy and I did so many things together and she was always there to feed us, chauffeur us, and try to keep us behaving. She was a kind and caring lady. She always treated me like family. My family always liked going into the Sussex and Surry bank to do our business with the nicest person there, Mrs. Scarborough. I am so glad I was able to visit with her last year after Troy and I stopped by after fishing. Just like old times, she provided lunch for us. It’s like time stood still for me as I spoke with her and Mr. Scarborough in their home. She will be dearly missed. Thoughts and prayers to all of you.

Condolences to all of Jackie’s family. I know she was special to all of them. I became acquainted with her many years ago through her cousin, Louise Collins. I always looked forward to hearing Jackie and her family’s music each year at the PPP Festival. Their music was always the best there and all her family members and many friends were always there to listen. She will br greatly missed.

Our prayers and thoughts are with Bobby and his family during this most difficult time in their lives. Jackie was one of the sweetest people I have ever met--always with a smile on her face and kind words for everyone. It won't be the same for me going to the Wakefield Baptist Church and not seeing Jackie sitting in the choir with a beautiful smile on her face. However, I can have peace in my heart knowing she is now in Heaven as one of God's special angels.

May Sue and Gene Glasco

A wonderful lady whom I have had the pleasure to know for all my life. My thought and prayers are with all of you. If is comforting to know that she is in God's loving arms.
