Sorry to hear of Jackie’s passing. We always looked forward to seeing him and monell at the meador reunions. We brought momma up to see them years ago, enjoyed visiting with them. We even got to go see Eddie and family. I know y’all will miss your mom and dad, but just be thankful for all the memories. Take care of all those precious grandkids and great grandchildren. Enjoyed the memorial video.

Prayers and condolences to the Law family. I truly feel that with Jackie's passing, we have lost another one from the 'golden age'. As they say, 'they don't make 'em like that any longer'. Rest in peace Jackie

My condolences to the entire Law family. Jackie was a wonderful person. He loved his family, he loved his home. So glad he was able to pass on to heaven from there. His family will continue to honor his life. He's back with Monell and his spirit will live on with this beautiful family. Prayers to you all in the coming days. I will miss this man. So full of wisdom.
