I wanted to send a note to the family to say how sorry I am about your loss. To Fred & Elsie Parsons, you did a wonderful job of caring for Jesse the past few years and ensuring that he didn't have to go to a nursing facility. You were a loving step-son and daughter-in-law and I have no doubt that Jesse's time would have been much shorter if you hadn't cared for him so well. God bless and keep each of you in the days ahead.
