  1. To all Family and Friends of Gwendolyn Jackson: I would like to express my deepest sympathy to all of you in this time of loss. Surely this woman was greatly loved by all she knew. I wanted to share a verse two from the bible that has offered me comfort and surley will do the same for you. At (John 5:28,29) we can look forward to a time of seeing these dead loved ones of ours again as it reads: ” Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear my voice and come out. Those who did good things to a resurrection of life…” So we can look forward to the day when we won\’t have to worry about death and the sorrow and pain that comes along with it because Revelation 21: 4 assures us: ” And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry , nor pain anymore. The former things have passed away.” So won\’t it be nice when sickness, pain, and death are no longer a part of life, but something of the past? I hope that this has brought you some peace of mind and comfort in this time of loss. With Warm Sympathy, Ashley Campbell

  2. Dear Family of Gwen: My friends & I played bridge with Gwen for several years at Tillam Senior Center in Torrance. She was such a lovely person, always looking so beautiful and always nice to play cards with. Our sympathy goes to all of you – we feel fortunate to have known her.
