    This is hard. I just hurt my own soul by even coming to see what was on the page about you. Grandaddy I had you 33 years and naively... I really never gave too much thought about life without you. I’m hurting and I’m mad because you deserve so much more than what can be done during this pandemic. I promise to try and get better with this because I know you loved my smiles and not my tears. To the best GRANDADDY EVER, I love u and I can’t wait to see you again💔

    We could not have found a better friend and family to connect with when we moved into the neighborhood. Grieving is a given but the memories are forever with us. You know where you can find us and we continue to pray for you and the time when we can get together again. Love to all of you. Patricia & Lucious Jackson
