Staley A. Jackson
We all here at Family Pet Care want to dedicate this page to Staley. Staley was a true angel walking this earth and we were so blessed to have been lucky enough to know her and to work with her. She will always be here as part of "Our Team". There could never be a person better than Staley to show each and every one of us how we should live our lives. Staley always had a smile on her face and would go above and beyond the call of duty to take care of our clients, their pets and her co-workers. She loved God, life, animals, her family, and helping others. She has been known to have helped people pay their bills when they were in a bind. She worked as a receptionist at Family Pet Care from 2005 until 2016 when she became too sick from Acute Leukemia to work. If you have ever been in our office when she was working, you will remember her smiling face and her kind words and her helpful attitude. Staley was one of a kind and we miss her every day. I would like to thank her parents and her brother for all their support and for assisting us with creating this memorial on our website. Fly high sweet Staley as we know you are walking in the most beautiful place and we will see you again one day.
