Jesse has always meant so much to me. My fondest memories of him would have to be the ghost stories he would tell us while we were sitting around fireplace. The fireplace would always have a real lit fire and we would always have something to drink while we listened to his stories. My favorite story was one about small baby footprints that would be in baby powder across the bricks in front of fireplace. I will always be amazed how he ate when I was a small child. He would drink half of his beverage, which was usually milk, then eat all of one type of food that was on his plate, then move on to next thing and eat it. When he was finished with all his food, he would drink the other half of his beverage. Jesse and Hazel always had time for us no matter what was going on. Jesse let his light shine to so many people. I always admired the good morals, honesty, patience, meekness, gentleness, humbleness, selfless, and love that Jesus possessed all the time, not just when others was around. Welcome to your new home. You are home now with Hazel and grandma and grandpa. You are blessed to share all eternity with the Lord our Savior and God.

Jesse has always meant so much to me. My fondest memory of him would be when us kids were young, we would sit by their fireplace in living room and Jesse would tell us ghost stories. The fireplace always had a real fire lit and we always had something to drink while we listened to his stories. My favorite ghost story was one about small baby footprints that were found all over the bricks across the fireplace bottom in baby powder. I will always remember that I when I was a small child and when we came in, how Jesse ate his meals. He would first drink half of his drink which was usually milk, then eat each type of his food on plate one thing at a time. When he was finished, he would drink the other half of his drink. Jesse and Hazel always had time for us no matter what was going on. He let his light shine to so many people. I will always hold on to the good morals, honesty, kindness, meekness , patience and love that he gave so freely. Welcome Home to your new home. I love you so dearly.
