Jesse from Arizona

My name is Jessica, people call me Jesse. I grew up in a large family of four brothers three sisters. Everyone moved to other states except myself and John. As the years pasted John started to get sick and unable to do things on his own. He's had a few surgeries and recently is healing from a colon resection. Family means everything so at this time of need for John I've been there. I have missed days of work to be there to help him recover. Thankfully he lives miles from me so it's easy for me to cook for my family then just fix him a plate and take it to him. Cherish your family no matter how big or small .
