Jackie, It has been a year .i never new how much life would change without you in it. I do not feel whole anymore.There is a hole in my heart that can never be filled. I find myself going through the motions day after day but there is such an emptiness there that no one can understand. I miss you so very much. You were truly a loved man and touched so many lives. I hope you are resting peacefully. I know I will see you again and I am expecting to see you waiting for me at the gate. Until then I will keep you tucked away in my heart longing for the day I see you again. I loved you then,I love you now and I will love you forever,

Hard to believe it's been a year dad! I miss you more ever day. The girls sent you letters on blue balloons. Caylee always watches until she can no longer see them in the sky and she says that's when she knows you got her letters. I hope you are at peace and resting. I love you!!

Happy 57th Birthday dad, I bet you thought that I would forget. lol with Love always April......
Friday, April 12, 2013
Dad,

It has been Two months and Two Days since you gained your angel wings. Every time I have tried to write something I freeze because it all still seems so surreal. You were the invincible one. You were the one that always kept us strong and always knew the right things to say when we had a bad day, even if we didn't want to hear what you had to say. Every day that passes I miss you more and more. No man will ever be able to fill those boots of yours. No man will ever show the love, compassion and kindness you showed your family and friends each and every day. I could right pages about how wonderful you were. You were my protector and no matter what I will always be Daddy's Little Girl. I can only hope that Skylar grows up to be half the man you were. I promise to teach him everything I know about fishing and to finish the lake house that you loved so much. I will never forget our last moments together at dinner right before God called you home. I replay those moments of laughter and watching you play with your grandbabies over and over again. I try to be strong because I know that's what you would want but it has been the most difficult task given to me yet. I know that I may not be able to see you every day or talk to you every day like I was used to but I will always carry a piece of you with me and I know you are watching over us. You have no worries now and you are stress free. I hope you are doing what you loved to do best, fishing. We will see each other again one day at the pearly white gate. You better have a fishing pole and BIG hug waiting for me! I love you Daddy always and Forever!

How do you describe a life in just a few words? How do you let go of your best friend,husband and the person you have loved for most of your life? We have been together for the past 40 years building our family and our life. We had our share of ups and downs just like everyone does, but if I could do it again I would not change a thing. I can not imagine spending the rest of my life without you here.My heart breaks for you. Your life was cut too short. God took you so quickly there was no time for goodbyes and I will not say it now. I know I will see you again when my time comes to join you. I hope you knew how much we loved you and how much you were loved and admired by so many . I still can not believe you are gone. I keep thinking you will walk through the door any minute, but then reality hits and I realize you wont be coming home. We shared wonderful memories together and I hold them safely tucked away in my heart. I feel lost without you but when I think of you,the years we spent together and the wonderful memories we made together it feels like you are still here beside me.I wish that we had more time.There was so much more we had planned for our future.Why God took you so soon I will never understand. I was always told that only the good die young so I guess that it was true because you were one of the best. Jackie you are and always will be the love of my life.I know you are in a better place and hope that you are on a beautiful lake fishing to your hearts content. I fell in love with you when I was just a girl and I have loved you ever since, and I will love you til the end of time.
Rest in peace my love, until I see you again.

When I think about Jackie i think about him taking me and my brothers fishing. He and Jamie actually gave me the birds and the bees talk on a boat lol. I will always remember him taking me to the Austin Peay bass tournament and us being out there all day and not catching a thing. Then late in the day he pulls in a nice bass and looks at me and says "Munchie, we got a shot!!" :) we pulled in that evening and saw everyone else with bags of fish and he says "alright lets go home." He did'nt say much, but when he did everyone listened. He was kind hearted and loved his family very much. He helped me become the man that I am and i will always remember him. Its times like this that I thank my father in heaven that i know of the truthfulness of the gospel and that we will see one another again!!
Sunday, February 17, 2013
I will miss Jackie's wonderful sense of humor.
My cousin has left us too soon and he will be missed immensely.
May he rest in peace.

My father in law passed away sunday. He was a loved man and my regret is that I never told him I love him or even gave him a hug. I worked for Jackie for three years. We worked together almost everyday. When he passed on sunday I opened the doors to his business and I expected him there. Talking to his two crews I lost it and sobbed uncontrollably and they gave me a big hug and went to work. I appreciate them all as they stepped up to the plate this week. Jackie I wanted to tell you that you trained us well and I will continue to do as you wanted me to and I hope I make you proud. I know we had our differences at times, but I will always hold a special place in my heart for you as you were a great friend and father. You were never my second father: you were my father as you were just like my dad. You and my dad are equal to me and I hope to raise your grandchildren as you wanted to your expectations. I promise to always love your daughter as you would want your son in law to and always be there for peggy. I love you and will never forget you. Thank you for giving me a chance when no one else would. I love you dad!!
Friday, February 15, 2013
Even though your time on earth was too short, I will always cherish the time we got to spend together going fishing and getting to know each other. I know you're in a better place now, but you will be missed. Thanks for all the great memories and I'm very thankful to have had you as my father-in-law.

Your son-in-law,

Greg

I knew Jackie professionally over the years as he did numerous jobs for me and my family. Not only was he the most ethical, honest, and thorough tradesman, he was also the kindest and most pleasant person. He made an emergency run to my house on the day my daughter was born. All I had to do is leave him a key and he would take care of everything else. "Dont worry about anything. Go meet your daughter" he told me. I knew I didnt have to worry.
They don't make em like Jackie anymore. I will miss him more than I can explain.
Friday, February 15, 2013
I loss for us, but gain for Heaven. He is a great man.
Friday, February 15, 2013
Even though Jackie was the owner, He would pick up a tool and be right beside you trying to figure out the problem, he treated everyone like they were his friend, He was a Good Man, My heart goes out to his Family.

Peggy and daughters, I ran into Jackie, at White Castle, about a year ago. All he could talk about is how long he and Peggy had been married, his 3 great daughters and all his grandchildren. He truly glowed as he told me about each and everyone of you. He loved you all very much. Jackie was a great guy. He will be watching you now from a distance, but always know he is there. Will miss him.

What do I think of when I think of Jackie?
I remember a man who opened his home to me, my 3 boys and my brother for two weeks in 1999, not even once considering what it may do to some of your other relationships.
I think of backing down the interstate, in your Expedition, on our way to Opryland in Nashville, because you had missed the exit.
Brother-in-Law you will surely be missed, not just by me, but by so many who's life you were a part of. May you rest in peace.

John and family, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. You are in my prayers.

Wednesday, February 13, 2013
Oh Daddy seeing this is making it so much more real. :( I'm trying to be strong, I'm trying to remind myself of what you would tell me to be strong. I wasn't ready for you to go. Daughters need their daddy especially a Daddy like you. You were my first love. You were our rock when all else failed you went to Daddy and he helped you handle it. I already find myself without thinking saying let's call Dad then it dawns on me I can't call you. :( Us girls promise to take care of mom and make you proud keeping your memory alive running Bennett Electric Co for you just the way you taught us. With honesty and heart. We promise to raise our children the way you raised us be honest, to reach for the stars, never roll over and to speak their minds. They will be reminded of you daily so they never forget you because you are a man that no one should ever forget. You gave to so many people with out asking for anything in return other than to see them smile. The countless repairs you did for no pay the angel tree babies you got each year and made sure they had a Christmas. Kellie, April, Mom and I will promise to live up to fill those chubby feet of yours.

I could go for hours on all the things about what a wonderful man, husband, father and papaw you was.

You will be so missed Daddy but I know you may not be here in body but you will be here in my heart and in my thoughts for the rest of my life and I am still going to talking to you everyday and even yell at you.

I love you you Daddy!

I'm very sorry to hear about Jackie. I met him around 16 years ago when my business The Tavern needed extensive electrical work. It was going to be very expensive but he told me "don't worry about it we'll do a little at a time". He was an honest business man and I sent him many referrals. He will be truly missed.
