Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Bob and Joyce Hesse were life long friends of PopPop and Mamaw - and PopPop thought Carmen and Jill were the most beautiful, wonderful girls! We used to tease him and say "who's the prettiest - the Jose girls or the Hesse girls?" He would just laugh and say "the Jose girls, of course!"
