So sorry that my family and I missed the passing of Ms. Jackson. We didn't hear until after everything was over. Ms. Jackson was an inspiration to all and an example for all to follow. She was a beautiful lady inside and out!With sincere sympathy,Teena Pinckley Steen

I shall always remember your mother for her energy and graciousness. She was indeed a lovely and charming person who seemed to love people of all kinds. I am sorry for your loss, but Heaven gained a wonderful personality in your mother.J. Kelly Shirley
