Photo Tribute to Jackie Hudson


In my sorrow over the loss of our dear Jackie Hudson I found myself going through photos in a sort of meditation on her remarkable, full life.  Since I first posted the photos of the last decade I was able to scan a multitude of photos from Jackie's earlier years.  I hope you enjoy this glimpse into Jackie's life as I have.

Jackie visited Portland OR and gave a presentation about her work. I took my elderly mom with me to hear Jackie speak. Mom, a survivor of a bombing raid in WW II, still suffers with PTSD from that experience. I made sure that mom met Jackie.
Rarely have I witnessed such kindness and compassion for mom from a stranger. Jackie connected with her in a profound way. Mom felt heard, recognized, and valued. I hold Jackie in high regard for that. When she passed, I remembered how she responded to mom, bringing all of us such grace. Here's to the memory and legacy of Jackie. Now to continue her compelling work...

Thank you Leonard. I still have one of Jackie's letters from prison tucked into my Bible. She remains an example of what it is to be a follower of Jesus.
