Earnest Jackson was an amazing,kind,generous and loving man. He came into my life when I was under a year old and was the best grandfather I could have been blessed with. He stepped up when he didn't have to and I will always treasure the memories I have of him and lessons he has taught me. I would like to also say thank you to all of his family for being so kind as to share him all these years with mine. With my deepest condolences & Love Karie Beth Walker
