  1. My precious brother Jamie. Where do I begin with my memories, how do we begin to live without you. To say that I love you more than anything else is such an understatement. There isn’t enough words to describe my love for you. You were always so vibrant and so full of life. My comfort is knowing you are no longer in pain and debilitation. May you forever rest in peace my precious brother, your sister. ..Susan.

  2. I will never forget how you always made me smile. I find my comfort in knowing you are no longer in pain. I will always love you! Until the day when we meet again, you will be missed.

  3. Known you since we were 8. Always there for each other. Always knew how to get on each other’s nerves, but more importantly, always knew when we needed cheering up. You were one of the best friends someone could ask for. One day, we will do one of our “ride around to nowhere” again. Until then…….

  4. My condolences to the Vess family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.

  5. I knew Jamie from Union High School in Union, SC. He was always a bright spot in my day and we kept in touch on Facebook. Such sad news and taken so young. I shall miss his sense of humor and unique personality.
