My sympathy to the family for your loss. My most favorite memory as a neighbor to Mrs. and Mr. Jackson was their loving spirit. They would always invite you in to have a friendly visit. Mrs. Jackson would always invite us in for a cookie. Even my dog Rascal and his buddy Mushu would knock on her front door for their cookies! I miss seeing Mr. and Mrs. Jackson sitting together on the front porch in their chairs waving at us as we pass coming home from work. I want to share my favorite saying to you; there is no Earth sorrow that heaven can’t cure. They are sure going to be missed in the neighborhood. Prayers for you all, Sherry, Brian, and Savannah Wilmoth
