Mr. E.A. Jackson was dilligent.
He had a sense of duty.
Throughout His hard work, he looked forward to being at His House with Nanetta (Anita) (Nan) (Mother) (Grandmother).
He actually took immense pleasure in Helping others.
That is so rare and a treasure; which is why Sylvan Beach has lost a "treasure".
Wanda, Duane, Robert and Gail and of course, Nanetta (Anita) (Neeta) (Nan) love Sylvan Beach. Even if They travel, They have always kept their castle on Vienna Road.
On a Friday night, Al would let me down to His basement to lift heavy weights put there by the Dana and Dale S.
Al would be going to the fire hall on business and would say "just lock up when You leave.
I often would pray that he would make it back safely because He was working with EMT addressing crises situations and was exposed to deaths and bloodshed.
E.A.J.: "Al" as I knew Him - had a lot of power. He wielded it quite wisely by being humble in the post office, resaurants, Church fund raisers, Field days, Parades, etc....
I felt guilty many times when i would drive by His house on my way to College because I always wanted to spend quality time with He and Anita.
We see Movies of "war torn Heroes: standing in the trenches, but I saw Al standing in cold water in waders (directing traffic) during a storm as Oneida Lake was flooded and sand bags were needed to prevent Verona Beach from being submerged.
He was a real life hero and is with His Loved Ones in Heaven, laughing and watching over His Wife and Children (and Their Families) with Our Great Creator God, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit and All of The Holy Angels.
I need to take a drive now but I would like to write more about This Incredible Man.
He built a lot of Sylvan Beach's success with Hard Work and Love Of Family.
