    Belinda and family, I am so sorry for the loss of Jessie. I have known the two of you since you moved to West Point, 40 some odd years ago. Jessie and I became friends when you were living in the apartments next to my parents house. We used to fish and work on cars together. We stayed friends over the years even though we didn't get together like we should. I know one thing about him though, he loved you, your kids and grandkids so very much! Always showing me pictures of them while he was at work. Take care Belinda, you are in my thoughts and prayers. David
