Liz, I wanted you to know just how fondly I remember your and Guy's presence throughout my life. The blessings you offered me and my family (especially Nana and Papa) are cherished. You are certainly on my mind through this difficult transition.

Your family is in our prayers today and in the days ahead. My husband and daughter had the priviledge of knowing Mr. Jackson through his work with the Gideons.

A man of "Biblical" proportions. Guy loved his God, his country, his family, his church, and his friends. He also loved those who needed to know his Jesus and was faithful in trying to help them find him.
A rare man, who always did all he could to fulfill every commitment he made.
Guy will be missed greatly by all who knew him.
