My deepest condolences to your family during this most difficult time. There are no words that can ease the pain of losing someone so beloved. May you find comfort and peace in knowing that Mr. Jesse is in God's memory, because those who pass on are precious in his eyes. Psalms 116:15.

My condolences, because of Jesse's deep love of truth he lived and taught Jesus words: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee (his Father) the only true God"! (John 17:3 KJV)

May these inspired words bring your Jesse eternal life and you great comfort.

Edwards Family you are in my prayers this day as you celebrate the homegoing of your loving husband, father, grandfather, and more. Sorry we are unable to be with you during this hour of sadness, but I'm grateful that you, too, know and embrace the same God-like faith that Minister Edwards embraced. Knowing this alone is comfort and reassurance that you will see him again if you remain steadfast and unmovable in that faith. May the peace of God be yours now and forever. Love Your Cousin, Supervisor Betty J Owens Morrison.
