To the family of Jessie Babbs,

My name is also Jessie. I worked with Jessie at Erlanger for many years. Jessie was always cheerful, positive and caring. She helped so many people in many different ways in the hospital as well as out of the hospital. The staff, patients and families all loved Jessie Babbs. She was a special person. I have always had great respect for Jessie. Unfortunately since I now live in Conway, S.C. I didn't hear of Jessie's passing until the funeral was over. A friend sent me the obituary. I truly believe Jessie is in a better place. My deepest sympathy to the family.

With deepest sympathy for the family of Ms. Babb. I worked with Jessie at Erlanger and want to tell you what an inspiration she was to me. She was hard working, smart, and very compassionate at her job. She had a fun loving spirit and was a champion for the underdog. Rest in peace Ms. Babb you were a great lady!
