  3. It was a sad day when I heard of the passing of Jessie. I could listen to her talk about when she was growing up riding horses and getting into trouble for hours. She always thanked me for coming to see them. Even though I was there visiting Tom she was always a welcome sight, always smiling, laughing and a joy to be around.

  12. My thoughts are with the family.

    I was never fortunate enough to meet Jessie, but felt like I knew her. My aunt, Eleanor Oltean, was a close friend of Jessie’s and spoke of her often. She enjoyed reminiscing about times she and Jessie spent together and always spoke highly of her.
