Toledo Talk


A few years ago, my brother and his family moved into a new house. I met their next door neighbor (Jackie) at one of my young nieces birthday parties. My nieces would often visit Jackie and whenever one of them had a birthday, Jackie would come over with a gift and stay for the celebration. It was during one of these visits, that Jackie and I got on the subject of Toledo Talk. Turned out, that we both frequented the site. I couldn't believe it! After visiting the site every day, I had actually met one of the other posters. I asked her what her "name" was, and she said "Jackie". We laughed and talked about some of the topics and who our "favorite" posters were, etc.
I noticed Jackie has not been posting recently, and indeed her last post was back in September. I knew she had not been feeling well, and sadly, I learned that Jackie passed away this past week. I will miss seeing her at those birthday parties, and reading her comments about the "old days".
Rest in Peace, Jackie...

Very sad. She seemed to be a kind-hearted person in the forums.

Yes, jackie was always soft-spoken in her posts. That is so sad :( Prayers for her family in their time of grief.

Sorry to hear. We usually don't know the people behind the user names, but yes, she seemed like a very nice lady. RIP Jackie!
