I am So sorry I could not attend the celebration of my sweet, sweet friend. But will always cherish the joy and unconditional love she gave be for 60 years. You see, I always knew she loved me just the way I was (laugh). Absolutely loved her good cooking and the incredible stories she and Dan shared whenever I visited them. They made me laughed from the time I set foot in their home until I left. To Dan, Joyce, LaDonna and family, I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be part of your beautiful family. And I am sure that Jessie did not come and leave this earth without making a huge difference in many lives. So I give you permission to honor her by continuing to spread the same contagious joy, and light that she so willingly gave us all.
