  1. I am incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of such a beautiful and warm soul! I know that her love will continue to live in all of the lives she has touched.

    Great Aunt Jesse, I know I don’t need to tell you for you to hear, but I do need to tell you so I can say: I treasured and valued ever visit I had with you while growing up and while we both lived in Calgary. You always made me smile. It is your charm, wit, warmth, wisdom and snicker that will always make me think of you. I miss you more than you know. I love you.

  2. To Barry and Bonnie –

    My mom, Kay Hackl (Miller) forwarded the news regarding your mom’s passing and just wanted to send a note to let you know I’m thinking of you and trust you are both as well as can be expected under the circumstances.
    Although there were few times where I actually visited in person with Jesse, I have very fond memories of her as a person. I remember her as being warm and generous and remember her beautiful smile and kind words when I was young.
    I wish you both all the best and trust you are finding comfort from friends and family during this time.
    Bye for now, take care.
    Kim Hackl, Kamloops, BC
