    To the Jackson Family – sons, daughters, husbands, wives, and grandchildren all:

    I am very sorry to learn of the passing of your mother and grandmother, Lois Jackson. She was always someone I enjoyed and respected. I have fond memories of Lois and the many family events I participated in over the years. In this time of sorrow, I sincerely hope the love, faith and friendship of those around you help comfort all in this time of remembrance.

    Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; Love leaves the memories that no one can steal.
