We were sad when we heard about dear Aunt Jessie's passing. Wish that we could be there for the service, but cannot. We'll always remember Aunt Jessie and her smile and her sweetness. I remember going to their home as a child and having so much fun. Our deepest sympathies to our cousins at this time of loss.
