Pawpaw thank you for your guidance, wisdom, and leadership. Thank you for your unconditional love. I just left the house with Granny and I could help but stare at your favorite chair wishing you would some how reappear so we could watch another football game or laugh at “Family Feud.” I love you Pawpaw.

It is my prayer that the Lord will continue to bless, strengthen and comfort my sister as she try to cope with the loss of her husband.
Dennis was the best Brother-In-Law ever. He could do anything, a jack of all trades. Dennis did everything with a smile and had a laugh so big and deep, you would have no other choice but to join in. A happy soul.
The Lord blessed our family with memories of Dennis that will last a lifetime.
Lots of love for my family.

To the family, Bro. Jackson was always spiritually there for others, and that is how I will forever remember him having kind words and caring thoughts to share always. No words can take away the sorrow that you bare. May it be comforting to you to know that others care.
