Abbie, John and I wish to express our sympathies to you and your family. We know that Jesse was very special and will be missed by all. Of course, you have wonderful memories of Jesse to ease your pain. In fact, when we were ever in KC visiting, and would go to Mass on Saturdays, we would always run into you and Jesse in church. Both of you were very happy to see us and always smiling. We pray that God will put his arm around you and your family to comfort you during this very sad time. God bless you.
