Jackson my friend your passing has left an emptiness in our neighborhood. We are all going to miss having coffee with you of a morning. Sharing laughs, adventures of our lives, corny jokes or just being there to listen and offer support when one of us were down and hurting. We are also going to miss your beautiful works of art. What talent you possessed. I know we all feel blessed to have known you. Til we meet again my friend, my brother of the heart. Go Rest High On That Mountain....
