My dad was the best dad any one could grow up with. He was always there for us. Dad you are greatly missed.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I hope you are finding comfort in happy memories of your loved one. During difficult times a scripture that brings me comfort and peace is 2 Corinthians 1:3. I hope this brings you comfort as well.

Will is my fathers (George R.Jacksons, Jr. ) older brother. Will was always my favorite uncle and I always told him that. I guess because he was so much in my life always around with my dad. My Uncle Will did so much for me. Even these last few months his advice helped me through a very hard time and said things to my sister Ali that she really needed to hear to be at peace with our fathers death. I loved him so much. I have so many memories with him. I cry when I think of him gone but I think back to memories in my tears I laugh and smile because the memories were of good times. It's so hard to believe he's gone. My heart goes out to his children and grand children at this time.
