I'm so sorry to read of Jessie's passing. Although the obituary does not mention the Telephone Company, we worked together there, probably one of her first places of employment. We talked a couple of months ago and I've sent a letter since. She said it was almost impossible for her to write. It was also hard to her to catch her breath, but she seemed so pleased to talk with someone from way back. She expressed her gratitude for her nieces who were being so good to her. God Bless you for being caregivers. God bless you in your grief. God is ever close. ~~
