I am so glad that I got to see you two months ago. I told Leanna, "I need to go down yonder and check on Uncle Jessie before I go back home." I can still hear you now saying "Hey there, Young'n" every time I saw you, and you always picked on me and said, "looks like you been eating good" haha. Im gonna miss you, Uncle Jessie. Maybe you can acompany Daddy sometimes when he visits me in my dreams :-). I hope dreams of you will bring comfort to Aunt Mary, Jen, Jessie L., Jeff, and everyone else that will miss you so very much.
Love Always, Your Niece, Bridgett - daughter of Billy R. Bates, Sr. (brother)
