Jessie was a very special lady that always made me feel very welcome. The world is an emptier place without her.

Grief is the last act of love we have to give to those we loved..Where there is deep grief, there was great love. Jessie was great lady to me...always kind, always with a smile and always interested...

we are so sorry to hear of Jessie's passing. In June, while visiting with sister Lois, we talked about Jessie and what a fun loving person she was. I always remember when she came to Santa Fe New Mexico to visit and Dad teasing her about the "wild" Indians there. Our condolences to all the family. She will really be missed.
