Rest in Peace, Darrell Wade Jackson




On 11/16/10, My husband Darrell passed away. He had a heart attack while he was sleeping in his big truck in Monroe,Georgia. It took them several days to get him back home, but we got him home and he is at rest in Falkner Cemetary, about 2 miles from our home. These past couple of weeks have been like an awful nightmare for me and the children. It's so hard to believe. I had talked to him at noon on that day. He had been sick with a cold or something , and told me he was going to lay down and rest and wait for them to unload his truck.




We had his funeral on 11/20/10. It was a beautiful sunny day. I'm so glad that it wasn't raining.




I'm in slow motion these days. Please keep me and my children in your prayers. Keep Darrell's grown children and family in your prayers too. Darrell has 8 grandchildren. He adored them all..


I'm going to try to post a couple of pictures.




Keep your loved ones close and tell them you love them.




Bunches of hugs,




Stephanie

I will pray for you and your family!!

Steph,

I dropped by to wish you a Merry Christmas - I haven't been on line much this past summer and fall - didn't expect to find a post like this one...

I'm sorry Steph. You and the kids hang on. If you want to talk, send me an e-mail.
