    To the Jackson Family - Our deepest sympathy and condolences to each of you in your tremendous loss. Deacon Jackson was one of God's finest men and he showed it in his confident walk with Christ. He will be truly missed by everyone who knew him. He absolutely loved working with Habitat for Humanity and the people he came in contact with. STAND FIRM - Let nothing move you. "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV Deacon Jackson stood firm in his walk of faith. He said what he meant and meant what he said. We loved him but God loved him best. He will be truly missed by everyone. May God forever keep each of you in His arms.

    My sincere condolences goes out to the family during this difficult time. There is nothing more unnatural than for a parent to bury his or her child. The Bible at Acts 24:15 provides us hope of a resurrection in which we will be able to see our loved ones again. It is my hope that you continue to turn to the God of all comfort ( 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 ) by daily reading  the Bible and accepting the comfort from others.
