In tears we saw you sinking, and watched you fade away
Our hearts were almost broken, because we wanted you to stay
But when we saw you sleeping, so peacefully and free from pain
How could we wish you back with us to suffer that again.
It breaks our hearts to lose you, but you did not go along
For part of us went with you the day God called you home.

Ruth Davis, pastor, will officiate with burial to follow in the Belmont Cemetery.

Wow, I will always remember you uncle . I remember you driving those 18 wheelers to visit us in Durham nc . You will never be forgotten. The last of my dad, stallie Jackson siblings 😞

Hello Jackson family, I am Monica, one of Stallie's daughters (of the 8 children he had). We just learned of Uncle Peel's passing from a family friend that still lives in your area. We wanted to send our deepest condolences to everyone. He was our dad's only living sibling so this is shocking news for us. As many of you may know, daddy was estranged from us for so many years, even up until his death in 2007, so we had no real connection to our extended family here in NC or anywhere else. We all still live in the Raleigh-Durham area and range in age from mid 40's-60's. Daddy has 10 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren that he never knew. He and mama divorced in the 90s after he left NC and never returned.
Sadly, I believe the last time that many of us saw Uncle Peel was probably at the family reunion we went to back in the late 70's. Again, please accept our family's condolences during this difficult time.

I would like to express my sincerest condolences to my family for the loss of my uncle. I only wish that we could have gotten to be with all of you more,under happier circumstances. I will miss his kind spirit and charming personality and smile. It was just as beautiful as my father's, Stallie. I will keep you all in my prayers. Dana Jackson Taylor.

During a person's life, special relationships are made, Walter's was one of those. I will miss you dear friend.
