Memories Timeline


  1. Marie, Carol, Richard, Joy and family,
    So sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of grief and loss.
    Anne Goodson
    Elizabeth Lee UMC Chickamauga

  2. Dear Marie and Family: Yalcin and I are so sorry at your great loss. Jesse was such a sweet, kind man, and endured the last few years of dire health setbacks with such stoicism. As his body gave out, he was rewarded with the home prepared for him in Heaven. It’s hard for you to lose your husband and father, and I pray that you will be comforted as you bask in the good memories of a life well lived.

  3. Marie,I am so sorry for your loss. I have happy memories of and Jesse at Brookhaven UMC. Ray and I were blessed to have known you both. Now Jesse and Ray are once again together.

  4. Rev. Jesse Warwick was one of my favorite ministers at Brookhaven United Methodist Church. He preached to Bible as it was written and was a wonderful person in all phases of his life.

    Rest in peace Jesse
    With Love,
    Bryant Mitchell
