Volunteers and employees poured over years of Red Cross history today as Jackie David, a volunteer with the Red Cross for more than 40 years, dropped off memorabilia items dating back decades. Sheet music, Red Cross pins from the 40's, a copy of the original Geneva Conventions and more layered the tables and the hearts of every Red Crosser.
Jackie has been a teacher, a friend and a passionate advocate for many of us in the Red Cross, and not just in Dallas. She has trained and mentored Red Cross workers from one end of the country to the other. To know her is to love her.
It is always hard to say good-bye to these volunteers who touch your heart so deeply. So, instead of saying good-bye to Jackie, we will follow her example and hope to some day live up to her legacy.
Jackie David and her husband, Harold, also a Red Cross volunteer, are preparing to enter their retirement years. We wish them nothing but much deserved love and happiness.
