  3. Dear Mike, Craig, Mark, Kevin, Vicki,
    The Jackson family was very much a part of our growing up years for the Swanson kids. Sat many of times on the front porch having conversation with your Mom. The streetlight in your yard was our home base for a lot of after dark games. Sharing a birthday with your Dad always made your Mom laugh when I would come over with a cake to share. Looking for your grandparents to drive in with their Rambler coming for a visit from LadySmith was always a big deal. The horses. Many many memories. Lots of good times you had as a family and I hope you can hold them close to your hearts.
    She now is at peace–You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. Jackson family, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. We have so many good memories with all of you. Your mother was a special lady and loved by so many neighbors.
