July 4, 1931 – July 10, 2020
Welcome Home When I am gone, release me, let me go - I have so many things to see and do. You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears but be happy that we had 89 wonderful years. I gave to you my love; you can only guess how much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown. But now it’s time I traveled on alone. So, grieve a while for me if grieve you must. Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for a while that we must part so just keep your memories of me within your heart. I won’t be far away, for life goes on. So, if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near. And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear all my love around you soft and clear. And when your journey is over and you must come this way alone, I’ll greet you with loving arms and a smile, and say “Hey Sweetheart, Welcome Home”. With Love, Momma
The Legacy of Helen Jackson Our mother, Hugh Helen Jackson, passed away peacefully on the afternoon of July 10, 2020. She went home to be with our Lord at the age of 89 years old. Momma was born on July 4, 1931 to the late Pastor Hugh and Lula Precious McKinley in Longview, TX. She was the baby in a large family of 11. She received her formal education from the Shiloh Independent School District. Helen is predeceased by her parents; first-born daughter, Charlotte Jackson; late husband, Lasalle Jackson; her brothers and sisters and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins. She is lovingly remembered by her daughter, Diana Jackson, her granddaughters Pondra Zigler, Nascha Jackson and Shayla Jackson; Her grandson in laws, George Zigler, Harvey Terrell and Chanson Young; 7 great-grandchildren; 7 great-great grandchildren and her nephews, Lonnie, Larry and Dwight all of whom she loved like her sons. Everyone that knew Momma, knew that she loved her family above all else. Her home is where everyone congregated for the holidays and Sunday meals. Momma was THE best cook, hands down and not debatable! LOL Momma could be a mean little lady, but at the end of the day, it was all love. She was always there when any of us needed her and she will be sorely missed by all. We love and miss you momma! ♥ Acknowledgement
