Aunt Jessie,

I would like to thank you for all the fond memories of my childhood. You always shared your warm heart generous with your love. As I get older I truly value the kindness of family. Its with a sad heart that my children never got a chance to meet you and experience your love . Our family was very small but the love you expressed to me never made me feel that way, again I would like to thank you for everything.

Aunt Jessie, and may GOD watch after your loving soul

I will always remember sitting with you on your porch shortly before you moved to Stamford.
It was fun to sit and reminisce.
