Heather and Stan BlairDear Nancy, Bob and families: The world has lost such a kind and generous spirit. So many wonderful memories of fun times together. The fishing trip on the caboose was a highlight. Our thoughts are with you. Love Heather and Stan.
Bill & Sue HaskettNancy and family, Thinking of your mother today brought back memories of the truly lovely person she was and that she was always so very easy to talk to. I know you will miss her but will be sharing wonderful stories with your family over the next few days and in the future. Reading the notice it seems that she leaves quite a legacy as your family has contiued to grow! We are away the next few days at a conference and regret that we are not able to support you in person. You will be in our thoughts.
Lorraine & Chuck BallDear Nancy and Bob, and Family, We knew Jesse as a sweet neighbour and were sorry to hear of her failing health. Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear Mother.
Bill MorrisNancy/Bob and family, though it was sad to all of you last night under the circumstances, your mom/grandma/etc meant the world to me and my family. "Aunt Jess and Uncle Jack" were two of the kindest people who brought a lot of joy, laughter and caring to our family. I remember so many times the kindness of Aunt Jess and the razor sharp humour of uncle Jack; my parents and them were best of friends and our family loved them both. We kids truly, saw them as our uncle and aunt. Take care of yourselves during these difficult times. Bruce and Bill Morris Bill
Andrew & Jeanie Sellers Dear Bob and Nancy, Jack and Jessie rented our Condo in Destin, Fl...Coral Reef...for many years. After Jack died, whenever Jessie would come to Destin, we would always get together. Following Jessie's example Jeanie still stays during January and February at the Majestic Sun Condo. Jeanie sent a birthday card in January 2019 for her birthday and it was returned by the post office months later not delivered. We have been continuing to pray for her since we did know her condition. Sorry for loss!!! Jeanie and Andrew Sellers 245 Evangeline Drive Mandeville, LA 70471 504-577-8735 Cell
