the passing of a good friend.

Just a note to anyone out there who might have known JOHN JACKSON from the BROOMHEDGE AREA in the 1950's and before he made his home in CANADA.

John Passed away on Monday 25 Sept.2006.
He had been in a nursing home in the Windsor Area for the past year or so. His Wife Lillian passed away a few years earlier.

Re: the passing of a good friend.

Thankyou Lord for the very sad news
about John.I knew them both very well,
I think the only one left in the
family now is May, Johns sister.
I remember very well when they left
St.James's to go off to Canada. we
all felt very sad about them leaving.

Hi Sylvia,
John has a Brother Norman who lives around the Carryduff area. Also 2 Sisters in Africa.

Where is SIS. Betty, and John these days .???

Re: Re: the passing of a good friend.

I'm sure you'll be hearing
from the sister after she
gets this news. Forgot about
John's other sisters, did'nt
know if they were still alive
or not. I guess it's May and
Greta. John certainly was a
very nice man, as was the
whole Jackson family, they
lived up the lane from us.
