Not sure what to say?


Dear Susie, Please know that our prayers are with you. I have shared the sad news with the Carmelites and you know they love you so much and will hold you in their hearts forever. The Lord is our Shepherd and does walk with us just as He did with the two disciples on their way to Emmaus. God Bless you and your family... Love & Prayers forever, Rita

remember Jesse for his patriotism as a great American.....and his belief in family values...

Dear Suzie and Family,
Words cannot possibly convey my sadness for the loss of precious Jesse. It had been some time since I had seen him, but I like to think we shared our own mutual admiration society. I'll never forget the first time I met him, and he was so crazy about you and Dave. His love for his family was so strong, I just adored him. Please find comfort in the fact that he is with Dave now, two very special souls to be sure.

Jesse I miss you everyday but you are no longer hurting inside. SOTA always up never down. See you when we meet again bro. ONE

I am so very sorry to hear about Jesse.

Just read about Jesse's passing. So sorry for you and your family. May you find comfort knowing that he is on the otherside with many more loved one and that he will always be remembered and loved by those here.
