Jackson, Adam*  
2014 Adam Jackson of Oakland, Maine, and Jupiter, Florida, left his fun filled journey on earth for eternal life on November 15, 2014. His spirit will be carried on by his mom, dad, brothers, step- parents, grandparents and his extended family of relations and friends from every walk of life, all who have been very blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Adam during his life and through his battle with melanoma. His positive fun filled attitude throughout life motivated others and put a smile on the faces of others each and every day. More often than not, Adam would put the needs of others before his own. He could often be heard saying "it is what it is"! Adam lived his 37-years-long life big and often referred to his life as a "good" ride. He had a passion for the Boston Red Sox, the New England Patriots, NASCAR, beautiful girls, a party, his colleagues and his family and friends! Adam was a true foodie, never passing up a perfectly cooked slice of prime rib. He loved to cook and entertain during sporting events and other times. He also enjoyed great times with family and friends boating, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, bar hopping and eating out at fantastic restaurants. Adam loved his annual trips to Moosehead Lake with his dad, brothers and friends. At his request, Adam's ashes will be scattered at the base of Kineo during a winter ice fishing gathering. Adam is survived by his mom, Dianne Dubord, and his stepfather, Dan "Dano," of China, Maine; his dad, Bruce Jackson, and stepmother Dianne, of Oakland, Maine; his brother, Todd Jackson and daughter Emily, of Smithfield; his brother, Ben Jackson, his wife, Val, daughter Cassie and son Dalton, of Oakland; his grandparents, Georgette and Joe Moore, of Waterville; and his stepsister, Krystal Tavares and sons Aiden and Keagan, of Waterville, Maine. Adams was also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins and best friends from both Maine and Florida. Adam will be reunited with his grandparents Priscilla and George Jackson, his grandfather William Lewis and his cousins Kevin Brann, Bryan Corson and Travis Lewis. The family would like to thank the Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa, Florida, and the Palm Beach County Hospice for its excellent care and treatment. Adam's brother Ben provided unselfish care, compassion, and support during Adam's final journey and the visit from his friends from Oakland and his Jupiter friends during his last days made his eyes light up at each and every visit. Remember my friends "life is a beautiful journey, live large and it is what it is"! A celebration of Adam's life will take place from 2 to 4 on Sunday, November 30, 2014 at Silver Street Tavern, Waterville, Maine. Donations in Adam's memory may be made to Messalonskee High School "Sports," 131 Messalonskee High Drive, Oakland, ME 04963.

Mom, *  
I just thought I'd say I love you and goodbye We will miss you dearly I promise I'll try not to cry I will never forget our talks Conversations on the phone How happy you were to see me When I finally came home You worried so much about me I worried about you too I know this is the hardest thing We've ever had to do I know you'll always be with me Wherever I will go No one needs to show me I will always know I don't know what to do, Mom I never thought I'd lose you Where I'll go from here I still haven't got a clue I hope you'll watch over me Be my guilding light Giving me the strength I need To win this endless fight You're my guardian angel, Mom Sitting on my shoulder Whispering your words of wisdom To use as I get older I don't want to say goodbye But we'll meet again some day We'll pick up where we left off Before you went away. Love, Annie

He was 77. Albert studied at Colby College in Maine and received his BA from Columbia University in New York with a small stint as a "Yank" at Oxford University in London. He enjoyed a rebellious youth, hitchhiking across the nation and collecting stories that would inspire a desire to write, draw and paint. He met his future wife Carolyn, also an artist, on Bliss Street in Sunnyside and lived in Sunshine at the time of his death. For 50 years, the family called Vienna home, which remains the primary residence. During his life, Albert was passionate about righting wrongs. He encouraged all those he came into contact with to pursue excellence and follow their dreams, whether it was education, arts, sports or professional careers. Albert took his last breath following a long battle with lymphoma and subsequent health issues. He was surrounded by his family at the time of his death and while his presence will be terribly missed, his journey continues and the indelible marks he left behind will always be cherished. He is survived by his wife Carolyn, four children - Dianna, Will, Joe and Dan - as well as daughters-in-law Maeve, Nancy and Donna. Memorial services will be held at a later date. Donations in Albert Raedle's honor can be sent to Deer Isle Artists Association - Artists Helping Artists, P.O. Box 634, Deer Isle 04627.
