    Jesse I've known you for over 35 years. You had a heart of gold and a big smile to go with that hugh heart. You was my dance partner for years and my brother-in-law also. You are one of a kind you will truly be missed but never forgotten. May you now rest in piece and without pain. You put your dancing cowboy boots back on and go kick up heels. Love you.
