In Memory of My Cousin Patricia Audrey Dean Jackson

Patricia Audrey Dean Jackson 1946 - 2011

I could not rest last night for tears. So I decided to commune with you in spirit by writing how much I love you.

You were my friend since I was a child (since forever). I guess that's why all my grown-up defenses disappeared around you and I could feel like a kid again. Infact you were really more like the big sister I never had.

You probably didn't know that you were joy to me. Rarely was I with you and we did not laugh. Your heart was an open book that captured my imagination and always took me on a journey. Your laughter was contageous like a yawn.

You were always the same to me. Your love was unconditional. You had a natural humility that always made me feel safe. Throughout the years there have been many who's love I have had to question. But never yours.

Why did a heart so sweet stop beating? While many others are still walking around with no hearts at all.

I'm glad I got to see you Honey before you passed into eternity. When I kissed your face, you said, "Why did you kiss me?" And I said, "BECAUSE I MISSED YOU!" Then suddenly all the years apart disappeared and you remembered how much I loved you. Suddenly life was the same again although I still felt like a stranger to some. You were my unbroken, unconditional link to love Pat.

I will always treasure those last moments we shared toward the end of your journey down here. With you I felt I was home again. I will be missing you -- until I see you on the other side.

Eternal Love -- Darna


2011

If someone wrote a tribute like this for me, it would fill me with joy. What a beautiful communication between two beautiful ladies. You are blessed and so was she. May the Lord bring you that deepest peace that passes all understanding at this time and touch you with His presence always. love in Him, Yvonne
