There are so many beautiful memories of my dear friend Jackie Ambler. We met in Miami in the 60’s. Two young women became the best of friends. Many of her talents were lessons for a better life. She never allowed much time to remain unhappy with herself or others. She always had a balance in her daily living. We spent, as we would say “the best time in our lives” was in the Keys. We watched the sun go down every night enjoying every moment. Frank was the love of her life and her two beautiful daughters. I thank God for our friendship. Reply to this comment

I was only able to meet Mrs Jackie one time. She and her daughter Joyce spent the day with my mother and myself in Ellijay at the Apple Festival. Everyone had a wonderful time and the mothers got along great.. That was many years ago before Mrs Jackie moved to Georgia. Since then I have lost my mother and now Joyce and Barbara have lost there’s. I didn’t get to know her well but Joyce is one of my best friends. I have known Joyce for over 20 years. Mrs Jackie raised a beautiful, loving and caring daughter that has help me through some painful times in my life and is always there if anyone needs her. I’m so sorry for your loss Joyce but know I’m always here if you need me. Love Tricia Reply to this comment

I miss having Jackie, as we called her, in my nightly activities. She was always a great contributor. If she forgot about the night activity and had already dressed for bed, she would change her clothes and come on down. Loved having her here at Gaines Park. Reply to this comment

We loved Jackie and we miss her so very much. She was so kind to all of us at Gaines Park, and had the most positive attitude all the time. She truly brought a ray of sunshine into the room always helping someone who needed to share their joy or sadness. She encouraged the staff with her kind words about someone or something every day. After her meals was when she enjoyed her time for music. Watching her as she listened to the music as she sat by the window and commenting "Oh the music is so pretty" was uplifting for us. We miss her so much but we are so Thankful for Her Beautiful Life giving us encouragement and an example to follow. We pray for God's comfort to her Family. Virginia Reply to this comment

March 27, 2020. Happy Birthday Daddy! I’ve been thinking of you and Mom all day. I just want to “THANK” everyone for all the wonderful and loving posts that have been written. It truly has been so heartfelt for me and my sister, Barbara. ❤️ This lock-in, due to this terrible virus, has been so hard on everyone. So with Blessings, I wish everyone good health and happiness.

To the GG that made an everlasting impression on my life, even before we actually met ???? My youngest daughter now listens to the books on CD you sent our family YEARS AGO in 2008; and I remember clearly when you sent a lovely shawl to keep me cozy after having my brain surgery in 2012. Your phone calls for all those years were always a joy, and then I finally got to meet you in person ???? There is no denying that our outgoing personalities were a perfect match! You always made me feel loved, and appreciated. Your humor was as silly as mine when it was just the two of us together ???? I loved you dearly while here on Earth, and feel super blessed knowing you are watching from up above ☺️ Love you, GG.... and, yes, I will tell Michael you love him ???? Enjoy your health, and wealth, in heaven with Frank ???? Reply to this comment

Joyce and I have been best friends since 1966, 8th grade. Spent many days at her house and her at mine. We have remained close even with her move from Miami, FL to Georgia. Reading through many of the statements about Jackie, her strength, the love she shared with her husband Frank as well as her friends, children and grandchildren are so true. You could see the love between her and Frank, an especially kind soul was special. One of the generous things I remember about Jackie was opening up her home for a baby shower for the son I had just adopted. I was grateful for her kindness. Last year I visited with Joyce and went to see her at Gaines Park and you could see how much she loved being there and the friend she had there. Sending love and light to everyone that is missing her and Frank. Reply to this comment

When I first met Mom, I knew she was a strong willed woman. She spoke and said what was on her mind and nothing kept her down. She loved her husband (Frank) so much. Every night she would fix his bed and tuck him in, putting sports on the TV. (Dad was her Knight in Shining Armor) We all truly miss her and I hope she remembers to give Dad a hug from me.

Frank and Jackie or Jackie and Frank, I also enjoyed visiting with both. From drinking a cold beer with Frank or just talking to Jackie. You both will be missed but we will all meet again. Reply to this comment
