In Loving Memory of Larry Eugene Jackson II

late January 16th we received that dreaded phone call about my nephew in Texas. My brother Larry’s son Larry II was on life support and was brain dead.  His parents had some heart breaking decisions to make.  The family gathered around and waited for the final diagnose.  My brother Ronnie and I packed a bag and headed out to Texas with our brother Larry for a final goodbye to a loving son and nephew.

On the way down Lil Larry was so unstable that some decisions were made over the phone on the way there.  His parents decided to donate his organs to help save someone else.  Their son was gone but his organs could help another family waiting for a miracle.  God takes someone we love so much and in return his parents are able to give to another in their time of grieving.  What an amazing gift these parents gave to someone else.

We arrived and my brother signed the paper work needed to end his son time here on earth.  Final goodbyes were said and we all left with a broken heart.  A  29 year old baby boy was gone!  Born September 20, 1984 and departed January 18, 2014

the Little Larry we will all remember with his jokester and cocky grin .. he was such a good hearted person who loved his family with all he had.


Miss Me – But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road

and the sun has set for me

I want no tears in a gloom filled room

Why cry for a soul set free

Miss me a little but not too long

and not with your head bowed low

Remember the love that once we shared

Miss Me – but let me go

For this is a journey we all must take

and for each must go alone

It’s all apart of a bigger plan

A step on the road to home

and when you are lonely and sick of heart

Go to the friends we know

and bury your tears in their loving arms

Miss Me – But Let Me Go


Those dreaded last moments .. saying goodbye to a beloved son, brother, nephew, cousin and friend …


One of the last good pictures of him with his mom Jean and his brother Lucas .. he loved his family dearly


These last 2 pictures will be how the family remembers our beloved Little Larry!  He sent this picture to his sister Amy blowing kisses to her even though they were hundreds of miles apart.  You can see the love he had and no amount of miles could stop him from showing his love.


Because his family is broken between Illinois and Texas each will be holding a memorial to honor his memory.  We have  planned for  our family and friends on February 2nd at 1.00 PM to honor his memory. 

RIP our beloved Little Larry and we will always remember you blowing kisses from heaven.  You will be greatly missed but your memory will remain forever in our hearts.
