So close, but oh so far... My relative, Sean Mathews, just made me aware of Jessie's passing. For so long he has been trying to find our California relatives and I am so sad to read she has moved on! I live in Oregon and I most surely would have visited her. She would have been thrilled to see what Sean has made of our Family Tree. I am the daughter of Malcolm Lowry Gardiner (1922-2009), and he was a first cousin to Sean's mother. Jessie sounds to be a lovely person, who had a full life, and at 100, with no direct relatives, there are still those who honor her presence - that says something. Many blessings to you Jessie and I am sure your heart will be warmed and full of love by all those who greet you at your family reunion!
