    There is absolutely nothing to say except Jessie was one of the sweetest woman I knew. We had many beautiful conversations whenever we saw eachother. It was mostly in the laundry mat. We laughed talked about old times and I so enjoyed talking to her. Jessie you will be missed. My prayers for Michael, Maria and your granddaughter (whom I never got to meet). RIP and watch over your family. Fran
