Remembering Jackie - from a Sister’s Perspective
Jackie was my younger brother and I didn’t expect to lose him this early. Even though he had been dealing with poor health for some time, his death was unexpected and has been a shock.
I have some great memories – one being when we were very young and lived on second creek in Lutts, TN. There was a hill across the road from our house. I solicited Jackie to help me build a play area on the hill. The way I remember it is we set up a little area for a living room, kitchen and bedroom. We actually played together in this area, until he thought he was too old for that kind of stuff!
Some of you probably know that Jackie had a mischievous or fun loving streak. As children, we always lived on a farm. I remember a time when Judy, Eddie and Donna, our cousins, were helping Jackie and me work in the field for our parents. Unknowing to our parents, Jackie decided to take us for a ride in the wagon hooked up to the tractor. Did he ever take us for a ride (going faster than I thought we should go)? I remember yelling, “Stop, Stop!”
We had lots of cousins and enjoyed spending time together. I especially want to remember David, who died of cancer in 2010. He and Jackie were the same age. They were such cut-ups. When David and Jackie got together, look out.
I have pictures of Jackie holding my children and my brother Bennie’s children when they were babies. He had a soft spot. I guess he was getting practice for his children and grandchildren!
My Mom always said that Jackie had a green thumb. When he was able to plant a garden, he always seemed to have plenty of bounty to share. Living in the Nashville area, I didn’t get to come see him as often as I wanted to. However, most summers I tried awfully hard to come see him so that I could have some fresh vegetables from his garden!

Other things about Jackie:
1. He worked at Murray Ohio Mfg. in Lawrenceburg for quite a few years. When he was younger and healthier, he was very good at repairing automobiles and other equipment.
2. When our Dad died in 2002, Jackie was there for my Mom, helping keep the yard mowed, etc.
3. And, when our Mom died from cancer in 2010, Jackie and Sherry were there to help. Thank you, Sherry, for loving my brother and his family.
4. I know that Jackie and Sherry shared the love of travel - visiting places such as Hawaii (two or three times), Israel, Jamaica, Bermuda, etc.
Most of all, it brings me great joy to remember Jackie and the two of us sharing our love of scriptures. He was baptized around 1980. Also, it brings me great joy to to know that his daughter Natasha loves the Lord as well.
It was hard to see my older brother Bennie die at age 65 in April 2014 and it is now hard to see Jackie go at the age of 65. I loved them both very much. However, God thought it was time for them to rest.
I am asking God to give me peace and comfort and I pray the same to each of you who mourn Jackie’s passing. Matthew 5:4: “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Isaiah 41:10: So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Needless to say, I am looking forward to seeing my loved ones again. ---Glenda
