    So sorry to hear about Mr. Jess. I will never forget the big sombrerro that he had on trying to get on the plane in Cancun and all the sunburned grandchildren. We had so much fun and it was always a pleasure to be around the Haun family. Our prayers are with you all.

    Dad, I’m am missing you with all of my heart. As I read the tributes and prayers people are sending in, I know how much you were loved by so many. You have played such a large role in so many people’s lives, especially my children’s along with Gary and Greg’s too. These kids have always thought Papaw Jess had hung the moon. And, in a sense, I guess you did. It’s just so hard to let you go!!!!

    I just want you to know how much I love you, and Daddy’s lil’ girl will miss him more than he’ll ever know!!!

    I love you, Dad!

    MY LINDA AND MY FAMILY,

    MAKING A DIFFERENCE

    MAKING A DIFFERENCE IS A CHOICE
    OR A CALLING FROM THE HEART.

    TO MAKE SOMEONE’S LIFE MUCH BETTER
    TO BRING A FRESH, NEW START
    TO CREATE A NEW BEGINNING
    WITH FAITH AND HOPE AND PRIDE
    TO MAKE EACH PERSON TRULY BELIEVE
    IN THE STRENGTH THEY HAVE INSIDE

    TO GET EACH ONE TO LEAVE THEIR PAST
    AS HARD AS IT May SEEM
    WORKING HARDER, YET MUCH HAPPIER
    TOWARDS NEW AND PROMISE DREAMS

    THERE’S NOT MUCH MORE REWARDING
    THAT LIFE COULD EVER BRING
    THAN HELPING SOMEONE WHO NEVER HAD MUCH
    LEARN TO WORK FOR MUCH BETTER THINGS IN LIFE

    JESS DID MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN MY LIFE
    AND SO MANY OTHERS.
    IT WAS A TRUE CALLING FROM HIS HEART.

    THE GIFT OF HIS KNOWLEDGE, HE GAVE.

    THE GIFT OF HIS TIME, HE GAVE.

    MOST OF ALL THE GIFT OF HIS LOVE.
    FOR NOT ONLY ME, BUT SO SO MANY OTHERS,
    HE GAVE.

    HE HAD MANY TITLES

    MY SON, MY JR.
    MY BROTHER
    MY NEPHEW

    MY HUSBAND
    MY DADDY
    MY PAW PAW

    MY DEAREST FRIEND
    MY BOSS, MY JESS

    EACH ONE OF THOSE TITLES HE HELD
    HE WORE THEM PROUDLY WITH SUCH PRIDE.

    WHAT A MAN

    I LOVE YOU MY JESS, YOU ARE GOING TO BE SO MISSED.

    I LOVE YOU MY LINDA,
    I LOVE YOU MY SWEET KIDS,EACH ONE OF YOU, AND I LOVE YOU SWEET SWEET GRANDBABIES, JUST THANK YOU FOR SHARING
    YOUR JESS, YOUR DADDY, AND YOUR PAW PAW
    WITH THE REST OF ALL OF US.

    SHEILA SPEARS
