There is a real need to raise money to pay for the expense of the funeral, burial, and tombstone. We are in the process of setting up a bank account to accept funds and I will send out another email later today with that information.
If you can make a contribution, please email me back with the pledge amount so that we can keep track of where we are.
Jessie Mae is truly blessed to have many friends out there who love her and are fans of her music. I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your love and respect for Miss Jessie Mae.
