Jessie, although we never met I felt like I knew you through all of the neat things Gladys shared with me about you. You were her "sunshine". I know you will continue to live on in the memory of those who love you and may you all be united in Heaven someday. Peace be with you and your family. Sincerely, Kim Golwitzer
