What a loss! I've known James for years, and he is such a loving husband and father. I am shocked this tragedy has struck the pride and love of his life. I feel so sad for the loss of Jacqueline and Janessa, and my heart goes out to James. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers...
I am extremely saddened to hear of Jacqui's untimely passing and send my deep-felt condolences to her family, friend and co-workers. She was hard-working, gifted and always a pleasure to work with. She will be missed.

My hearth goes out to the family, you are in my prayers.
When I first heard of the tragic explosion in San Bruno, I was deeply saddened of the lives that were loss. I recall learning that a mother and young daughter had parish in the fire. I could not sleep well that night thinking about these two lives that were suddenly gone. At that time the names of the victims had not been released. I was extremely shocked to learn that Jackie was an alumni of SJU and then I remembered her-her smile, her curly hair, running into her in the hallways. My deepest and sincerest condolences to your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
James and Gabriella -
I'm so very sorry for your loss. May you be surrounded by people who love you and may you feel God's love lifting you through this very painful time. Sending you prayers for peace and healing.
I do not know you but I am a close friend of one of the teacher's at Janessa's school. I heard of the tragic news and my heart goes out to your and your family. I am an elementary school teacher myself, and lost my 26 year old brother tragically in a car accident 2 years ago. The suddent loss of a loved one so young is unbearable and tragic. My heart goes out to you and your family in the loss of Janessa and Jackie. May you find comfort and peace (in time) in knowing that they are now in a better place.. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Krista ~ San Mateo
I met Jackie and Janessa all too briefly this summer in Italy. Am so very sad to hear of this tragedy and send waves of love to James, Gaby, Terry and all who knew and loved them.
I am very sorry for this tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers go out every day to you and the other victims.
Dear James and Gabriella: Although you do not know me, I had to express my deep sorrow for your loss. This must be just unbearable for you and your entire family. Your wife and daughter were just beautiful and my heart just achs when I see their picture. Just know that you will be reunited with them one day, and know that they will always watch over you. When I loss my Father, James Van Prague's book, "Talking to Heaven" really helped me. Believe me when I say that your wife and daughter will always be by your side. My prayes are with all of you--God Bless, Tina
Our prayers, thoughts and love go out to the Greig and Macedo Family. I graduated from St. John Ursuline one year before Jackie and I remember her smiling face. She and Janessa will surely be missed but will never be forgotten by those whose hearts they've touched. May God Bless you and watch over you and may happy memories outweigh your time of suffering and grief.
May this light shine in rememberance of the life Jaqueline and Janessa lived. God bless you and be with you and may the memories outlast the hurt and pain you are feeling now!!
To The Greig an Macedo Family,
You do not know me. But last Monday my husband sent me the link of the Obituaries and he mentioned to me that I should read it because it's important. As I opened it and reading the name of Jacqueline and Janessa. It hit me when I read that Jacqueline went to/graduated from SJU. I also went to that school graduated 1 year before Jacqueline did. My heart throbs for your great loss. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers, and may the good Lord will ease your pain and suffering during this most difficult time.You have 2 new Angels now, and they are looking down on you.
May God Bless you all.
God bless you and your family during these tragic times. You are all in our prayers. May they sit at the right hand of our Lord and may the Blessed Mother greet them both. Robbie Gregson, San Francisco, Ca.
You have my condolences in this difficult time, and my best wishes as you go forward.

James and Gabriella,
My heartfelt condolences to you and all of your family and friends. I live in San Bruno, my husband and three daughters are graduates of St. Ignatius, and I graduated from St. Cecilia's. You have the love and support of many communities. Very often I light candles at St. Cecilia's, I will keep you in my prayers. God bless you.
I can't imagine what you are going through. I met you and Jackie once at Alex and Arleen's Birthday party at Holas. She was the most vibrant person I have ever met. Janessa became friends with my niece over the summer during camp at S.I. My niece is crushed that she has lost her new friend. She said she will always remember her and the friendship they made over the summer. Their memories go on and will not be forgotten. Two special people who touched so many lives. Please know your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
To James and Gabriella,
You don't know me but I went to St. Peter's elementary school with Jackie. I knew there were fatalities but didn't know it was Jackie and Janessa until this past Monday, when a co-worker expressed her grief on a mom and daughter she knew had lost their lives in the San Bruno explosion. When she called me over to her desk so I could view their pictures my eyes filled with tears and I was in a state of shock as I recognized the woman as being Jackie Macedo. We lost contact after graduating from St. Peter's as we went to different high schools. Occasionally our paths crossed during our high school years. Though I lost contact with her over the years, I can still vividly remember Jackie with her curly hair, big brown eyes and beautiful smile. My heart aches for your loss. I can't even imagine the grief you are feeling. I am keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers during this agonizing time My sincerest condolenscences to you both.
May God give you the strength to contiune through this difficult time. I'm so sorry for your loss.
All my Love and Prayers are with
There are Angels flying 3,000 miles

I wanted to find out who the girl was that died. I am so sorry. I wanted to know who and your mom were. i am thinking of you.
James and Gabriella,
May the Lord keep you strong during these difficult times. I used to work at the PUC with Jackie and James. God did a great job making and pairing them together. I am heart broken that Jackie and Janessa were taken way too soon especially since I did not have the pleasure of meeting Janessa. Stay strong as I know these times are tough for you.
May you be wrapped in the warmth of peace, and illuminated with the light of love and happiness. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May the many wonderful memories of you bring comfort, peace and understanding to all whose lives you touched. You will truly be missed.

Dear James, Gabriela and Macedo Family:
I was heartbroken to hear that Jackie and Janessa were two of the victims of the fire. I tried calling Jackie right after the explosion to see if you guys were okay. Her voicemail was full and I could not leave a message. I couldn't believe it, I has just seen her beautiful smile four days before the explosion as she was turning into Claremont from Sneath. My heart goes out to all of you. Con mucho cariño y mi mas sentido pesame.

THE KIM FAMILY
Although I do not know the family I want to convey my sincere sympathy to them at this sad time. Please know that I care.
My heart aches for all of you in the tragic loss of your beloved Jacqueline and Janessa. I don't know you, but wanted to express my deepest sympathy to all of you.
Dear James and Gaby,
No words can describe the incredible anguish that we feel for both of you over the tragic news that took away Jacqueline and Janessa- the people you love so very much. We want to let you know that your family is always in our hearts and prayers. We feel for you, we cry with you, we pray with you, we regret with you, we question with you, and most of all, we forever think of Jacqueline and Janessa with you.
We will hold the loving memories of Jacqueline and Janessa, esp. for Caitlin who had the greatest honor of sharing wonderful times with them. We will never forget Jackie's kindness and loving ways, with her busy schedule, she would call me to let me know of the Gaby's and Caits's plans. With Jackie, it was never a question that Cait was in good hands. She made Cait feel special, her affection and generosity were naturally manifested in endless ways like serving delicious meals, offering words of encouragement, taking the girls to dances, movies, games, the mall, etc. Cait will always hold in her heart the friendship that she shared with Janessa. Cait will miss Janessa's affection, humor, energy, sweet smiles and generous hugs. In your family, Cait was one of you- and we are forever grateful and thankful for that.
Time cannot completely heal, words cannot completely heal, but hopefully through the love and support of family, friends, and strangers, you will be able to come through this very sad time.
The Lee Family (Farley, Cecile, Cait, and Trevor)
Dear James, Gabriella & Macedo Family

I went to High School with Jackie at St. John's and always thought she was so very sweet. She always had something nice to say about everyone. She was a genuinely classy lady and I was so saddened to hear about this tragedy. My heart goes out to her and her family. May God keep you in his loving hands. God Bless you all.
Dear James and Gabriella...we just heard the news from Paul and Ginny from Holland. There are no words that can be spoken that will soften this tragedy. However, we are surrounding you with our prayers and love. We are only a short drive away if there is anything we can do to serve you during this unimaginable experience of loss.

My deepest sympathy to you both for your tremendous loss. I have just seen your loved ones' photo on the news and realized Jacqueline and I worked together at Macy's and attended SF State.

My thoughts and prayers are with you always and I wish you both peace...
James and Gabriella, my family and I are so deeply sorry for your loss. I saw a story about Jacqueline and Janessa on TV just now. They seemed like such lovely people. I know from personal experience the complexity of emotions that come with such loss, but what sustained me and I hope will help you is to know that the pain will pass. It doesn't seem like it right now. I know that it doesn't, but it will lessen over time. And in its place I hope you will find as sense of peace that helps us all be more compassionate for others because we, too, have been there. My sincerest condolences.
I'm so sorry to hear about this horrible tragedy. I was acquainted with Jackie many many years ago when I worked at Macy's in Serramonte and attended SFSU. She always had a smile and was very friendly. She had braces back then and it's nice to see that her smile shines through with or without the braces. I just want to say how sorry I am for the horrific loss. May their light shine brightly on those whom she loved the most.
We can't begin to imagine this horrible loss for you and your family. You are forever in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless you and your loved ones and may you be comforted by all who surround you.
I am very sorry for your loss my heart and prayers are with you and your family.God Bless You and your family.

James and Gabriella, I am so sorry for your loss. I was a colleague of Jacqueline's at the CPUC. She was such a sweet, kind person who had an aura of goodness around her.

I hope your faith and the love of family and friends sustains you throughout this difficult time.
I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Jacqueline and her daughter, Janessa. I work at the PUC as Jacqueline did and even though I didn’t know her very well she always seemed like a very nice and pleasant person to know. We both attended St. Cecilia Church and would often see each other at Mass. My deepest sympathies and prayers to her husband James and daughter Gabriella.

My heart goes out to you and Gabriella and both families. I loved Jackie's flashing smile, her warmness, her laughter and her sweet spirit.

We would see each in the PUC hallways and would compare notes about our daughters.My prayers are with you and your families.

I recall having met Jacqueline and her oldest daughter years back when my kids were attending St. Cecilia and her oldest Gabriella was barely five; she was a genuine, warm and sweet person.
