The wonderful Jesse Winchester passed away Friday, April 11, 2014.  He died peacefully in his sleep, at home, after fighting bladder cancer. He was 69 years old.

grapes   Thank you all for your lovely notes of condolence.  Many of you have expressed an interest in donations, so we have come up with some suggestions of things Jesse would love:

Plant an ornamental cherry blossom tree in his memory--he loved these; or, build a simple wooden bench for public or personal use and place it in a pretty spot.  Jesse wanted a simple wooden bench for our home, so perhaps there could be other "Jesse Benches" out there; or, donate to your favorite charity.

Jesse was a kind and gracious man who enjoyed simple pleasures.  We hope this helps inspire you.  Pictures would be fun to see. . .
