It soon became apparent that the transcription of the diary would require a large amount of time, and it was decided that the burden should be split up amongst several people.Celeste Jackson Cisco, David's wife, talked to her mother, Joy Jackson, about working with the diary. Ms. Jackson had the monumental task of transcribing the original diary onto a legal-sized notepad. After this was completed, the legal pad was sent to Sharon Cisco Parish in Franklin, Indiana.
