Condolence & Memory Journal

To Mrs Jackson and the family of Mr Joel, my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. I did not know Mr Jackson personally, but he had to be a good man because his children are. I went to school with Cheryl and worked with both Cornelia and Amanda at different times. The girls often spoke highly of their parents and little brother. The whole family is awesome; good Christian people. Once again, I am so sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Doug Holt
