Thank you, Jan, for your precious comment about my beloved, Jesse. I miss him so.
Just thinking about Jesse brings a smile to my face. He and my brother, Larry Lippe, were good friends. My twin sister and I have many fond memories of Jesse, and know he will be missed. May the many happy memories you made over the years as a family bring joy to your heart and comfort you. I am so sorry for your loss.
