So sorry to hear of the untimely death of Jesse. We use to work together at the Peddler and shared a love of antiques. He truly was a talented man because he turned old stuff into something beautiful. My daughter has an old door turned into a chalkboard she used at her wedding. May your memories comfort you, and God bless.
