I grew up in the Church of God of Detroit where her father R S Jackson was the Pastor. I shall never forget the impact Rev Jackson, his wife Sis Cleopatra and their daughter Melissa had on my life. The CHURCH OF GOD OF DETROIT, Vermont and Hancock , was the standard bearer for all the Church of God congregations (ANDERSON, INDIANA). The memories that hundreds of people who were apart of that membership or whoever had a chance to enter the walls of that church will always be indebted to the contributions that the Jackson family made on our lives. As someone said, and I quote, it has never been duplicated. And there will forever be a bond between all of us who were blessed with that experience. ANNE L LOTT.
