  • Jess, you and I had so much fun earlier in life.  We shared a special time in both our lives.  I will always keep you in my best memories when you were there to tell a story to keep my laughing.  Keep that grin in heaven, that great sense of humor and I'll see you next time around.

    your old boyfriend
