Mr.Jackson always put a smile on our faces as soon as we saw him walking in the door at Culver's! He was definitely a favorite of ours and will be greatly missed. We all took turns sitting down with him and keeping him company. It was fun to hear the stories he had! What a life he lived and he never slowed down! He always seemed to be talking about things he was working on in and around the house! I kept telling him to call his Culver's crew to help out because we'd be more than happy to help him, but I think he took pride in being able to still do most everything himself, even though he was in his nineties. His favorite flavor was caramel cashew and we will think of him every time we run it! What an amazing man.
