Rest in Peace, Jackie Guthrie
From Arlo Guthrie
Jackie Guthrie July 25, 1944 - Oct. 14, 2012
This morning Jackie left her body surrounded by her family and a few friends. She called us to her about 3 this morning to let us know she couldn't fight any longer. She was at peace with the life and dreams we shared together for almost 45 years. We stayed at her bedside through the morning until about 11:45 when she gently breathed her last breath. She will remain in our hearts and memories as she does for many of you. Thank you for your prayers and notes… With Love, adg
