JACKPOT ~ A top prize or reward

This memorial website was created to remember our beloved Jackpot   who passed away peacefully in his sleep on June 19, 2010 ~ you will live forever in our memories and hearts. xoxo

Jackpot Manuel Burks was born in Houston and lovingly raised there and in Burbank, Calif. by Gene and Becca Manuel. He became a treasured member of my family in November 2007.

During his last six months he determinedly and quite valiantly recovered from a saddle thrombus. He regained the use of his tail and the upper parts of both legs, and eventually his right foot plus some success using the left. The love, prayers and support he received from friends far and wide was overwhelmingly incredible.

Jackpot was beloved by all and will be missed tremendously but remembered always. Thank you, dear Jackpot, for sharing your uniquely wonderful *loves* with your families and many, many friends. I'm a better person for having you in my life.

You will live forever in our hearts.

xoxo ♥ I Love & Miss You, Jackpot xoxo
