    Dewey Jessie was the best kind of man. Hard-working, honest, dependable thoughtful and kind. He earned respect by treating others with kindness and respect. His smile and optimism brightened the day of those lucky enough to cross his path. His good country common sense was an uncommon virtue and contributed greatly to Dewey’s strong character. He will be sorely missed. R. I. P.
