Let the body that you occupied rest as it shall do, but cousin do as the bible states, praise God in heaven. In my words party like you never partied before. Dance down the streets of gold, enjoy your mansion, most of all enjoy the reunion with our family that preceded us is leaving this earthly land. Make that connection with your children and guide them and protect them as their guardian angel. You are where you are loved and don't have to be concerned about no more havoc, cousin live on "Girl", live on...

J.T.Q Crum -Providence - 07/26/2012

As a FAMILY and tribe, we have been especially hit hard this past month. Although we may be beset by such trials as DEATH, opposition, sickness, old age, depression, and economic hardship, please know that they are temporary. Any suffering we now endure will be done away with under God's Kingdom. We have a hope in Rev 21:4 -"And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Amanda Costa - 07/26/2012

All My Love Sandy

Jessie, As you rest in the heart of the Heavenly Father, may you know that you also will rest in the hearts of those who knew and loved you so much, especially your siblings. I will never forget our little trip to the old Rocky Point area with you and your dad and the fun and laughs we shared, nor will I forget you and Chris having that sisterly and brotherly chat in your kitchen about who was the biggest versus who was the oldest. I still laugh about it. Like Renee' said earlier, dance down the streets of gold like you never danced before. Although we did not see each other often, I always asked your mom and dad how you were doing and I appreciate the wonderful message you sent me just a few months ago. Rest in peace and not worry about your little ones as you will be their guardian angel and they will be well taken care of under the watchful eye of God. auntie myrt

Jessie.. you will really be missed, as I said before.. even thought we hadnt been in touch.. you still always have a special place in my heart, all of our hearts. Such good memories.. We learned about so many things together and had soooo many good laughs... My heart and prayers go out to your family and your little ones. Keep an eye on all of us.. Until we meet again.. Rest in Peace.

Uncle Rob & Auntie Marie - 07/27/2012

To our beloved family,
Jessie spent many, many times with us and what a sweet spirit! Are you aware that she actually attended the Providence Place Mall opening with Auntie Marie and was in awe that they sold $1,000+ shoes!?! We spent many hours chatting, loving and just "hanging out" and we had so much fun when she was with us. She had a talent for making "Dream Catchers" and other crafts with her gifted hands. For sure, whenever we were in her presence she showed us the utmost love and respect and it didn't matter where it was. We are so saddended and heavy hearted at her loss. There are just no words to express our heartache and our sympathy to the rest of our family, friends and others. But please remember "To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven...a time to weep and a time to laugh; at time to mourn and a time to dance' Ecclisiastes 3:1 and 4 This is our time to weep and mourn...even if we are 2,700 miles away...we are still grieving with eeryone.

Susan Ferreira - 07/27/2012

Jessie I will miss you with tears in my eyes so much rest in peace honey we all loved you so much.

Auntie Shirley and Family - 07/27/2012

My beautiful niece Jessie,our hearts are broken at your unexpected passing. You are gone but will NEVER be forgotten. We know that you are safe in Heaven with Grandma and Grandpa. Love Always.

Aunt Linda and Uncle Sal - 07/27/2012

Although we have always lived far from you, we did enjoy our times together when we did get to visit and I will always remember you taking me to get clam cakes and chowder in RI. I also enjoyed the times we spoke on the phone and I felt ever so blessed when you called to wish me Happy Mother's Day last year. Getting to text with you at times was fun too. I only wish you had more time with us so we could show you our love. You will be sadly missed.

I am so sorry for your loss. God bless her kids and family. My prayers are with your family.

Elaine M - 07/28/2012

I knew Jessie from my DCYF days - she's the only person I met during that time that I bothered to learn their full name. She was a hot mess - we both were - and that turned to the only friendship I made within the system. I never saw her again after that time, occasionally wondered how she was doing, remembered her every time I got a doughboy from Iggy's. The irony of learning of her death while at Oakland Beach is painful. RIP Jessie... I'm so glad I knew you, and I'll always remember you - you were there for me during one of the roughest points of my life, and you were always there with a smile.

Lois Mitchell - 07/28/2012
