Even girl outlaws need proper handles, she decided. So I became “Jesse James.”
Every morning, Mom and I greeted each other with smiles. We shared a life of fun, joy and compassion.
We were best buddies and traveled together. We invited new friends into our circle.
Mom taught me a lot.
The most important thing I taught her is what deep down I think she was already beginning to learn.
Live and love like there’s no tomorrow. For tomorrow often comes too soon.
RIP Jesse, 2004-2019.
