October 23, 1947 – March 21, 2016

 In the words of Stephanie Harrington Jackson,

Prayers for the family for the loss of my beautiful friend Jacalyn Baxter Lantrip. Jacalyn was one of the first people to help me when I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease as she had been fighting Lyme Disease & Cancer & had already learned so much.
This journey would keep us connected for many years sharing ways to help one another or simply giving each other moral support along the way.
I am going to miss you my sweet friend❤

  1. My condolences to the family on the passing of their loved one. Although I did not know Jacalyn, I am very familiar with the devastation caused by a tick-borne disease, and everyone in my family, except for me, has fought cancer. I can’t imagine fighting both. You will be in my prayers.


    My heartfelt sympathies to all of your family and those precious grandkids you were blessed to enjoy for years.

    Beautiful photo and she sounded just like she looked….a real peach of a woman.

    May God help you all during this time now and in months, days, and years ahead.

    Get out any videos of her MAKING COPIES 1ST and filing them away in a safe place.

    It’s great hearing their voice, laughter and watching their gestures and mannerisms when you really need it.

    I lost my husband 16 months ago.

    His recent brain autopsy 11.22.15 showed worldwide news of 2 diseases never found before:

    LEWY BODY DEMENTIA causing violent hallucinations like Robin Williams had.

    He’s being written up in scientific medical journal with me as 1st co-author over medical folks to be published somewhere in future months.

    hugs/prayers to you all,

    82 yrs. jack and i both had borrelia; both 35 yrs. NOT diagnosed correctly.
