  5. I was so saddened at the news that Jessie had passed away. Wish I had the pleasure and opportunity of meeting this sweet, kind, gentle lady in person. However I enjoyed our telephone chats. We covered the waterfront and compared notes on the weather especially in winter – it was a tossup as to whether Calgary or Winnipeg had the most snow!

    Despite her health problems, Jessie was always in good spirits and never complained. She often spoke of her children and also enjoyed telling me of Pepper’s hi-jinks. She loved that little furball and he in turn was devoted to her.

    I will miss Jessie more than words can say and always treasure her friendship. My deepest condolences to Mark, Mike, Heather and all the family. Thank you Heather for taking such good care of your Mom.

    Rest in peace Jessie. Will remember you always.

  9. My deepest sympathy to all the families. There are times that you get to know someone and yet never meet them in person, that is how it was for me with Esther (Jessie). She was a member of the Roundtable forum and was a very loved and cherished member, remembered most for her kindness, never a harsh word did I ever hear from her. She was a class act, and will be missed by so many.
    With Heartfelt Sympathy
    Sharon (Boffler)

    I had the pleasure of speaking via telephone to Jessie –she never complained, always was upbeat and came across as a very friendly, caring person. Unfortunatly I never had the opportuity of meeting her in person –only through the Rounder site and the chats on telephone.

    My sincere condolences to the family at this sad time. Jessie will be greatly missed.

  13. I wanted to add my sincere condolences to all of you. Jessie will be missed by so many.

    We loved her so much at the Round Table. She loved talking about her wonderful family and we always loved hearing about all of you and Pepper. She loved talking about that little pup.

    Jessie was a truly wonderful, sweet lady. She always had a kind word for all of us and a wonderful sense of humor.

    I feel so blessed knowing her by the posts she made. Just wish we could all have gotten together in person. What fun that would have been.

    May she rest in peace and prayers for all of you for comfort and strength.
