Celebrating the life of Jesse B. Rudd
Thank you for signing Jesse B. Rudd's Guestbook
I met Mr. Jesse (aka Pops) while I was working at waffle house. He was such an amazing person with the brightest personality being around him you can't help but smile. Mr. Jesse was also a big influence on me making the greatest decision of my life, becoming a soldier. Word cannot express how honored I am that I had the opportunity to have known Mr. Jesse. To his family and closest friends I am greatly sorry for your loss and you are constantly in my prayers

The death of a loved one always leaves the family with a void in their life. Having wonderful memories of the time spent with that individual is cherished by the family and helps them through the sadness and grief that death brings. I hope the family will find these words a source of encouragement as I have: “For this is the will of my Father that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life and I will resurrrect him on the last day.” So sorry for your loss.

Hello Rudd Family,I'm a neighbor living in the area. Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you a brief post. I too, well know the grief of losing love ones, and that at times like these, it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has really helped me to cope with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort at John 5 :28,29. I hope, that when you are feeling up to it, that you are going to look up these powerful Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also, I hope that this brief note, finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
With Greatest Sympathy, Your Neighbor : P.D.Walker.

To the families and loved ones of Mr Rudd, who we know will be dearly missed. Almighty God promised at revelation 21:4 that he will wipe away all our tears. And death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So,you can take great comfort in drawing close to God in prayer. And he will help sustain and support your families to endure in these difficult times and months to follow. My deepest condolences to all of your loved ones.
