Jacqueline was only eighteen when she wrote the poem, Joe. Her twin sister Valerie found the poem inside a teddy bear nightdress case a short time after she died. Valerie gave a copy of the poem to a friend, who asked me to read it. I agreed to publish a biography of Jacqueline's short life, including the poem.
