I know that heavens choir now has 2 gifted singing angels.

  • 1st Lady Barbara Jackson’s watch is over. “If you miss her singing down here and you can’t find her nowhere. Look over in glory and she will be there. ” The family has been so kind. She was a mentor and friend. So come along and celebrate a well deserved life, you were an instrument and instrumental in spirit. Rest in love and the bodsom of our Lord. Bennie, Beatrice, and Byron. Momma and Daddy will always share your prayers. Wow! 3 pastors preparing the faith.

  • Sincere condolences to your family. I am so very sorry for your loss. May God provide the necessary peace and comfort to your family and friends during this difficult time. Please remember these words of encouragement from the Bible: “ Jesus plainly told her: “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” —John 11:20-25.
