Memories Timeline


  1. Sincere condolences to the family. I am so very sorry for your loss. May God provide the necessary peace and comfort to your family and friends during this difficult time. Please remember these words of encouragement from the Bible: “ Jesus plainly told her: “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” —John 11:20-25.

  2. Jesse funeral got moved up to Wednesday/Thursday. I’m gonna miss it.
    Cynthia said ” go Emmett he would want you to go, you have been here for him.”

    The saying “ it’s not what you have in this life it’s who you have in your life” never rang so true for Jesse – he was blessed to have Cynthia.

    I thank God for my cousin Jesse, I loved him with all my heart. In the 70 years on this earth we never had a cross word.
    It all went by in a blink of an eye
    I’m gonna miss that boy.
    It was a helluva ride.

    Gloria and I send our condolences and prayers for the family

  3. My sincere condolences to all the family. Jesse was such a sweet person. May he rest in peace. He is reunited with Big Steve & Stevie ❤️.

  4. We are so sorry to hear about Jesse passing. We all used to have such a great time out at Jesse and Esther’s place. Those gathering are some of our favorite memories, and we will be praying for you Cynthia and for the whole family. We lost a good man here on earth but Heaven gain a sweet soul. May the Lord Give you his peace and comfort.

    Love you’ll
    Don and Josie Fielder
