I am so sorry about your loss. What a wonderful time it will be when God fulfills the promise found at Revelation 21:4 which says "death will be no more."

To all of your family:

Other than meeting Rick Inscoe, I have not had the opportunity to meet each one of you and express my sympathies in person. But, I do want you to know that I am keeping all of you in my prayers DAILY. May you find some comfort in knowing that God's Word tells us to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. From what I understand about Mr. Jackson, he had accepted Jesus Christ as His personal Lord and Savior - therefore, his eternity will be spent in Heaven walking the streets of gold, living in his beautiful mansion, singing with the angels, loving on his family and friends who are already there and anxiously waiting on his loved ones to arrive (and so much more) - yet while enjoying praising the Lord!!! My prayer for you is that during this time of separation, God graciously gives you an overly abundant amount of peace and that just when you need it most, you feel God's loving arms holding you tightly. During a time of separation that I recently went through, a great friend shared these words with me... "When your loved one is no longer with you they become a memory, and your memories become a treasure." So, for each one of you, treasure your "treasures!" And may your treasures always bring a smile to your face and laughter in your heart. Please know that I will continue to lift each one of you up in my prayers on a continuous basis.
