I already miss Aunt Jamesye so much. She remembered to send me a birthday card and Christmas card every year, and I always enjoyed visiting with her on the phone. We liked to make each other laugh, and I miss hearing her sweet laugh. She will hold a special place in my heart forever, and I know she is having a great time in Heaven every day with Uncle George and Gwenda and my parents. Sending lots of hugs and prayers for strength to Janice and Wanda and the rest of her family. With love and blessings, Teresa.

Mr & Mrs Tiner were our neighbors when I was growing up in MS. Gwenda was my best friend. Many days I played at their home and felt like part of their family. Mrs. Tiner would give me a ride to church and was my Sunday school teacher on some of those Sundays. When I went off to college, rarely would I get to go back and see them, but when I did, it was like I never left. Jamesye would write or send a card to me occasionally. It meant so much to me that she kept in touch. She always made people feel like they were the most important person in the room. I know she is with George and Gwenda now and she and George will be celebrating their anniversary again. My prayers go out to Janice and Wanda and I pray they will find peace in the days to come. Love always, Angie Pardue Malik

I will always miss Jamesye so much. We were next door neighbors for many years, and our children grew up together. My children and I loved her and Mr. Tiner, and they will always be remembered. Jamesye and I talked quite often, and in our conversations she would tell me how her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were doing. She was proud of them and she loved them very much. When we talked we always got around to remembering my Mother. Jamesye loved my Mother and my Mother loved her. I'm so sad that I won't be able to talk to her anymore, but I'm happy that she will be in Heaven with Mr. Tiner, and Gwenda. She was a sweet and kind person and she will be missed.

Janice and Wanda, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother. She was a wonderful lady and I know you will miss her very much. I have many good memories of our times together at Bethel and Norwood Baptist Church. She and your Dad were good Christian people and I consider it an honor to have known them. Remember all the good times and be happy they are together again. You are in my prayers. Much love to both of you. Jessie Williamson

I’ve known Jamesye since I was a little girl at Bethel Baptist Church in Jackson. I have always loved her & Bro. George. I know she has missed him the last two years & I’m glad she’s with him again. She will be greatly missed! She never missed sending us a Christmas card & every few months we would talk on the phone. I heard from her not long ago. Janice & Wanda, praying for comfort & peace for you both & for her grandchildren. She had a fine family! Love all of you!! ♥️🌸🌷

Aunt Jamesye was one of the sweetest ladies ever. She has been a blessing to all of her extensive family!
I would often be surprised by her unique sense of humor. She would be talking about something so seriously and then make a funny comment and continue as if it was just a part of the string of conversation. I think she was testing us to see if we were listening...
She and Uncle George are one of my all time favorite married couples. There was much wisdom and faith in them.
