I met my Father in law in 1974. He accepted me with open arms along with His loving Wife Beatrice. It is one of the best things that ever happened to me. He and I hunted and fished for many years to come. I learned more than you could imagine from Him and Beatrice. They were like my new Mom and Dad. I will forever miss them both and hope people will follow in their footsteps. They loved everyone they came in contact with. Please dont ever forget their ways, because they lived their lives in according to the Lord. God bless everyone and stay in touch. Thanks for your support in this tough time. We appreciate yall . Rember God comes 1st ,Family 2nd, and Friiends3rd. Do as Jesus would!

I have known Jesse for many, many years. As a teenager I hunted with him. During his later years he has always been an inspiration to me and many others as he continued to come to church and always have kind words for those he greeted.
