From the Jackson - Thompson
When Vaughn was  4
years old on his
grandfather's farm south
of Kennard,In., they saw
a tornado coming.
Someone grabbed
Vaughn and his has
blew off and he he
would not go in until he
been some hat.
~Marilyn Jackson Orr
When the Jackson family
wasn't working
hard farming, one of their
hobbies was listening to
the radio.
Vaughn enjoyed the
Indianapolis 500 and
Frances liked the soap
opera Stella Dallas.
Some other radio
favorites were Amos and  
Andy and the Grand Ole
Background music.
Turn up the volume!
Sunlight lit Mrs Jackson's face as she began to tell her story.
Amidst  rows of pews, and brilliant hues of streaming stained glass glory.
The congregation passed the plate ... as Huldah testified
I wondered where she found her faith...since Mr. Jackson died.
She'd turned to the Bible...and found her comfort there.
Her son..turned to the bottle and pretended not to care.
And as she spoke of faith and hope to the restless congregation,
a line formed at the altar , barring provocation.
Even the irascible Mr.Maddy...knelt down on bended knee
and thanked the lord for his Becca...and loving family
God in his amazing glory was in our church that day
He used a future angel to to show us all the way.

From the poem "Mrs. Jackson and the Congregation" by Mark Sean Orr®
