There is nothing harder then losing your Mom, but as time passes and you morn your loss, your grief will be replaced by smiles, as you remember all those wonderful years you had with your Mom. She would never want any of you to be sad, so try to remember that. She is now at peace rest in peace Mrs. Jesso. Our thoughts and prayers are with you…God bless

My beloved neighbour is in God’s home now. I will be 60 years old
on my birthday and i have never had another neighbour that I loved so much. Marina’s kitchen light was my guiding light to know that
she was okay. My over the fence pal, who will I have to share my
flowers with. She was a “little flower thief”, but she always came clean and confessed to her crime in my yard. I would give every
plant in my yard to hear her voice one more time.
To her children and grandchildren, I love every last one of them and when I see their faces, I will always remember my pal Marina.
God love and bless that family.
