“Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, you better run!”

“I’ve faced my share of challenges, but I’m tougher than I look!”

“I am a Vegas girl, I WILL call your bluff!”

“I can hold me own. I am my own person.”

“Everyone likes to have nice things, but I’m not one to brag about it.”

    Jac, you are an inspiration to anyone helping or coping with a disability. Your positive spirit and can do attitude brought tears to my eyes. I too am a nurse (since 1978), having a disability is not the end of the road it can mean taking a left instead of a right on their path in life. I am a true believer that everyone is put on this earth for a reason. Your son Nic is here to teach us that all the petty crap really is a waste of time, we need to support each because no one is going to be here forever. I hope your daughter Ashley is doing well, she is a very talented young lady, I know as she grows into a young woman she will look back and see that everything you did for her was to help her never hurt her. I wish you, Kathy, Caroline, and Rosie could be the “Real Housewives of NJ” now that would be a show I would want to watch. The show now is too dark you ladies could really give us a reason to turn on the TV to watch your lives. I hope Andy Cohen reads these comments because I don’t think I am alone in my list of cast members who would make a good show. Blessings and Peace to you and all your family. Mary
