Dear Al & Family: I have very fond memories of Jessie from our days at Hospital Trust Bank. Jessie was always there, professionally and as a friend. She helped me plan my first cruise, along with Al, and I was ever so greatful. She was a wonderful woman with a lot of class. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Al,and your family at this sad time.
