This is a Memorial Page for Jack Tavis Sweet.
As a boy I can remember how his Mother, Terresa, never wanted him to
get dirty, she always kept him clean and in the house a lot. He didn't
oplay much out in the sun, I guess that she didn't want for him to burn.
But he was a sweet kid, as to was he when he grew up, so I am being
told. He left his mother and went to live with his Father Glen Sweet, in
New York. I never knew Glen myself, but I will say from the time that I
spent with Jack when he was here in Texas December of 2007, which was a
short time, but I believe that Glen had done a really good job with
him. Why he would go off and join the Army at such a young age is beyond
me, but I am being told that was all that he ever talked about and
really wanted to do. So he did... I am so very proud of him.. I only
wish that he would have been around a lot longer, to have a family of his
own and watch his own kids grow up.. I think that would have been a
treat for him and all of us.. Jack you will FOREVER be in our hearts,!
our prayers, and also in our minds.. We will keep you and the rest of
your family and friends in our prayers always and forever. Can't say
that I have ever known anyone in the service who has died there, but it
truly is an honor to say that I knew you and that I was part of your
family. R.I.P Jack, for you have done your job here on Earth, and it is
now time for you to spread your wings and fly like an ANGEL with the
others. We will all lean on each other down here for comfort and support,
and We WILL make it through.. SO please don't worry about us.. We all
know that you are happy where you are, and is God for he has brought
another of his children home with him. Just watch over us every now and
then, which I am sure that you will be doing anyhow. I know that you are
in a better place, for there is no other that could even come close to
there. No more pain, no more sickness, no more being tired, or anything
else.. Just happy, and peaceful. I can only pray and wish that life
on Earth would come back to being that way. Well man that is about
all that I can come up with for now. Remember Please that you are
forever in our hearts and on our minds.. You may be gone from Earth, but
never from our minds and hearts and soul.. YOU ARE TRULY BLESSING TO
EACH OF US, FOR ALL THAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR OUR COUNTRY.. YOU ARE MISSED
EVER SO MUCH, AND WILL BE FOREVER... YOU ARE LOVED AND FOREVER WILL
BEE.... PLEASE DONT WORRY ABOUT US JUST WATCH OVER US AND YOU WILL SEE
THAT WE WILL BE OKAY, FOR THAT IS WHAT YOU WOULD WANT FOR US.. BLESS YOU
SWEET SWEET JACK... I LOVE YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!
THE SIMPSON FAMILY
