Life is but a stopping place, a pause in what's to be, a resting place along the road, to sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, different paths along the way, we were all meant to learn some things, But never meant to stay. Our Destination is a place, far greater than we know, for some the journey is quicker, for yours the journey was slow. Now that your journey has finally ended. You can now claim your great reward and find everlasting peace with the Lord.
Uncle Jackie we love you and you are going to be missed but we know you have a new journey to begin so until we meet again.
