Uncle Jesse,
You passed away 14 years before I was born. I have several pictures of you. Heard a lot of stories about you from family members. Wish I had known you.

Will visit your gave site today if I can locate it at Garland Memorial Cemetery.

I only pray your dedication to your duties and country were awarded as this scripture from Matthew declares, Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be known as the children of God.
