It is with deep appreciation when I look in retrospect at the discipleship, membership, and friendship of sister Erma Jackson. There was a genuine uniqueness about her that could be appreciated. Thank you. Until we meet again——— pastor Hull
Mrs. Jackson was a precious lady. I loved her patience, kindness and devotion to those she loved.
I am so very sorry to learn of Ms Erma's passing. She was a very sweet lady. I loved seeing her come into H&M. I had just the other day looked down her street as I was going home and wondered how she was doing. I work back in the office and don't always see the customers, but she was one of my favorites.
I will miss you dear friend.
Miss Jackson you will be truly missed rest in heavenLove Phyllis
Wishing the family peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your heart.
Mrs. Jackson was one of my favorite teachers in school. A beautiful lady inside and out. I loved visiting with her when I saw her volunteering in the community. Prayers for her family.
