  7. I will always remember Reverend Jackson for his elaborate set up at the church picnics! He used to tease and say, " this is the area where anyone and everyone will be schooled by my domino skills!! " : He was a wonderful person and he will truly be missed. God bless the family and you all will be in our prayers!
    Sincere Prayers and Blessings,
    Reverend Wingfield and Family 🙂

  8. As a child I was blessed to experience and share great time, events, holiday's, I enjoyed hearing him preaching the word of God, in 1998 I was blessed to get an internship with Waste Management and work on site with Mr. Jackson and on some days we shared good conversation and ate lunch there are so many memories that I can't tell it all your humble spirit and great smile and gentle voice will truly be missed! :innocent: LOVE LITTLE MARIE
