Dear Jesse, a friend to me always, almost like a father. He took care of my simple property since my move to Cartersville in 2001, and from that moment on we bonded. Despite your many losses and your health issues, you always greeted me with a smile and a kind word. You shall be missed and your story will continue as I share my experiences of you. God bless and love to you and Libby. Reply to this comment
