I spent many nights & weekends with the "Gibson's", growing up. I remember most: home cooked meals, piano playing, and Jessie playing easy listening music in the car, but the biggest memory is her coming into the bedroom at bedtime and reading us a Bible story & making sure we said our prayers, then church on Sunday morning. I'm so sorry for your loss. Love you all---Velvet

My thoughts and prayers go out to Jessie family. I have known her for many years when she and her 1st husband had Tommy's before it moved to its location now. All the school kids would go there to eat.
also, have attended church with her for many years. Will miss the get-togethers at Tommy's for the "Live Embers". Rest in peace Jessie, a job well done!
