4 Condolences for “Jesse Younger”

  1. Mike Druley

    What a good man Jesse was. I had the good fortune to work and worship with him for years. He was a caring and compassionate gentleman. We still have the wooden reindeer he made for us years ago. He will be sorely missed. May God bless you all and lift you up in His peace, grace and love.

    When a loved one dies family and friends feel a great loss. It is my hope as a community volunteer to share a comforting thought. In the Bible book of Job 14:14,15 a question is raised and then answered. It says, “If an able-bodied man dies can he live again?…You(God) will call and I myself shall answer you. For the works of your hands you will have a yearning.” Yes, the Creator longs to bring back to life those who have died. What a wonderful promise and sure future for our loved ones asleep in death. May you find comfort and peace in this time of loss. We express our deepest sympathy.

    To the family of Jesse Younger, My deepest condolences go out to all of you. Jesse was my little league baseball coach when I played for VFW. He was loved and respected by all the players. I think I still have my trophy we won that year. Stan, I remember you well out in center field and some of the other players . . Pat Ulm and Dave Graves as pitchers, Rick Snodgrass at 1st base, Mike Thompson at shortstop. I will never forget those fantastic days made even better by Jesse. All the best to you Stan and your family, Mike Templeton
