"Aunt" Jessie was one of my parents dear friends from City High School days. She remained a part of our family circle of friends; and such a help to me after my mother died in 1993. It is such a unique coincidence that she passed to the other side just hours before my Aunt Lillian Wooten, who was also a close friend of Jessie's. I can only imagine the catching up that is going on now in Heaven. Love, Ann Oliphant Post
