― W.C. Fields
Seventy-six years and a few months ago, this adorable little girl was born. Her parents named her Mary Jacqueline with the plan of nicknaming her Jackie. Her paternal grandfather was called Jack even though his name was Jesse.
|Paternal grandfather-Jesse better known as Jack (deceased before Jay was born)|
This baby, Jackie, had a big sister, Judy, who was 21/2 years older than she. Judy had trouble prounouncing "Jackie"; her version was more of a "Jay"....so everyone called Jackie, Jay.
|Big sister, Judy|
|Paternal grandmother who insisted on Jackie!|
