THE PARIS NEWS, Wed., Oct. 2, 1996, (Picture) Jessie Hughes, 81, of Chicota died Tuesday, Oct. 1, 1996, at Parkview Convalescent Center. God looked around His garden and He found an empty place. He then looked upon this earth and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest. God's Garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew you were suffering. He knew you were in pain. He knew you would never get well on earth again so He closed your weary eyelids and whispered ‘Peace Be Thine.' He then took you up to heaven with hands gentle and so kind. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone for part of us went with you the day God called you home.
