I read Susie's name aloud in front of 200 people at a Stand Up for Racial Justice rally in Boulder, CO in memory of the nine killed at Mother Emanuel AME. I have thought about her and prayed for the family every day since.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.

To the families: Words can't describe the sadness that is being felt for you from those who don't know you, but we feel because we heard of your tragedy via the news. Our hearts and prayers are with you.

Please know that our Heavenly Father will help you deal with this terrible tragedy. God invites you:(Jeremiah29:12)...And YOU will certainly call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to YOU."

Dear Jackson Family
John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
You have given Susie. She will have eternal life. I think that is important. My family have watched and been so proud of your family: Faith and trust in Christ. There has been so much swirling around it is so hard to keep up with what is right. Y'all know what is right.
I lived in Charleston 5 years ago in Ansonborough. I know your beautiful Church Family. Although I do not know you personally, please know your extended Charleston family Loves and is praying for you.
Together there will be change. Your best example has set the stage for HUGE change. Please know, we love you and hate you are having to deal with this. Your loss is bringing the whole country together, but no family should have to endure that to make change.
Trust the Lord conquers all.

Earth has no sorrows that heaven can not heal
Even though right now hurt is what you feel
Memories gained never cease
My prayers is for God to grant you peace
Love and encourage each other along the way
Be real and caring in whatever you do and say
Although our love one has depart
They belonged to God right from the start
Death when it comes is only a forever sleep
Knowing they are going away is why we weep
Have joy in knowour soul is for God to keep
Know our loss is Heavens gain
Live your life for Jesus you see them again
Be grateful for the memories through life you compile
Be reminded of their every smile
Be please for time spent all the while
Although the sorrow is hard to bear
Grieve as you will know God is near
Look up to God for strength each day
He'll be with you tocarry you all the way
It doesn't matter if you are young or old
Keep God first know He is in Control
Give God your life and hold on to His hand
Allow him to guide you with purpose for He holds the plan
Live, love, and do have faith to do your best
Trust the Lordto do the rest

I'm so sorry for your loss, but awed by your attitude - that has been the thing which (so far as I can see) has dominated the press - that you are leading Charleston in expressions of forgiveness and genuine love (the hard stuff), and promoting unity and community in the face of such violence, is inspiring and incredible, and I take my hat off to you.

Thank you for the lessons, given at such a difficult time - they are poignant and important.
