Joyce and family,
We are so sorry to hear this sad news of Jackie's passing. He will be missed by so many. He was always so kind and took time to say hello and chat for a little bit when we were up there for a visit. We love all of you so much and are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. All of you are very special and a great blessing to our family.
Dewey, Robin and Isaac Brown

Joyce, I know what it is to give up a husband , and Greg and David, I know what it is to give up a father---it's so hard; but God is the strength that will carry you through . He is ALWAYS there. May God comfort the whole family.

With a heavy and sad heart that I say good bye to my brother. However I will always have my memories of a faithful, kind, and helpful sibling that was there for me through the good and bad. The bonding of our big, loud, and tugging family always held. Knowing that he goes in peace and the love will always be my help in this loss. Sister, Joe Ann
