Let the memory of Gary be with us forever...in our hearts and minds Forever!

 This website was created in Loving Memory of our "Bubby", Gary George Jackson Jr.  Gary was an Angel walking this earth.  He was a great friend, an amazing young man.  He loved to lift people up...no one was allowed to leave his company without laughing or smiling.

Gary left behind a Mother, Father, 2 Sisters, 1 Brother, 2 Stepbrothers, loving family members and so many friends.  He is forever missed and loved! 

Gary was born in Tampa Florida on November 4, 1981.  He walked the earth for 22 years until his life was cut short in a tragic vehicular accident.  He was the Ultimate Brother and Son and friend to so many, the loss of Gary was felt by so many and still is today.  I can't go 1 day without thinking about him.  Gary just had this way about him that was contagious.  Nicknamed "The Joker", someone put the Joker card in his hand once he was in his casket.  What a hard time getting through his funeral.  It didn't seem fair, my parents grieved the loss of Gary Jr so much that they were unable to look at his pictures for many years.  We still feel the loss of him, wishing he was here so we could see the man he was meant to be.  My kids will never know their Uncle Gary, we never get to see him marry and have kids of his own.  He would've made a perfect Uncle and a Super Dad, had he made it that far in life. 

Today, He is still missed and loved and the grieving doesn't ever seem to end.  We have adapted to a life without him, slowly.  Its been almost 12 years and I still grieve the loss of my Brother, My Best Friend.  I loved him so much, that his loss will forever leave a hole in my heart.  Just wish I could see who he'd be today.

I hope his memory is honored and cherished by many.  I know that my family will never truly get over losing Gary.  We've just learned to live without him here...very hard but we have moved on to that stage of grief.  What an awesome young man he was.   Forever 22, Forever an Angel...God is building his army and He takes the best.  

Gary Jr, I love you baby brother.  My life has never been the same.  You are always in my thoughts and forever in my heart and in the heart of many others.

"Gary J...you are in my mind, forever in my heart! I love you and miss you and Troy so much!  I'm going back to school and it is in your memory that I have been stimulated to finish school and get my degree.  If it wasn't for you, I don't know what I'd want to pursue.  I want to make a difference somewhere and you did that naturally, all the time.  Watch over us all, wrap your Angel wings around us and let us know you are still here with us.  Always Baby Brother...life has never been the same since you left us on June 2, 2004.  Can't believe its been that long that you've been gone.

"Gary's tribute caught my eye, although I never had the pleasure of meeting him.
Some one loved him enough to create this beautiful page.
I have only one question--Why are the ones, like Gary and my David taken from us far too soon? Why?
Rest in Peace, Gary. I know you had a sweet spirit,"
