To Tanisha and family. My condolences to you all. Your grandmother, Ms. Jessie was a blessing. I was an honor to meet you both. Her spirit was bright and the joy amazing. Ms. Jessie blessed me on the day we met without even knowing. She left an everlasting mark on heart. May you all find the comfort in each other during this time. My heart and prayers goes out to you all. Please know that the Lord God will comfort and carry you all through this difficult time.

I was sad to hear the news that Mrs. Jessie had passed. I have embedded memories of growing up and attending Westville Elementary School. And almost every day after school Michael B and I would walk across the street to his house to play. Whenever Mrs. Jessie would come home from work before Jim arrived, and find Michael B and I playing downstairs, she would stop doing whatever she was doing upstairs, and come downstairs and talk to Michael and me, and she would always fix us something eat.
As I grew up and started playing Little League baseball, Mrs, Jessies would always pull me to the side and talk to me, and encourage me to never give up, even though I was the smallest, and littlest ki
...d on the team. Mrs, Jessies was a vital part of my young life growing up in Anderson.
I am and will be eternally grateful to God, for allowing such a wonderful lady like Mrs. Jessie, to take time and show interest in me as a child.
My sincere condolences and prayers, are with the entire family of Mrs, Jessies, and may you find peace and comfort in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I was really sad to hear about the passing of Ms. Jessie. A large part of my youth was spent in the barbershop. Mr. Jim gave sage advice, while Ms. Jessie created a warm and inviting experience.
