Jesse Urquhart

Dear Jesse:

You were taken from us far too soon, Jesse. And we love you so. We want you back, but that’s not possible.

If we had only known, that when you left that day, you would never return to us, we never would have let go of you, ever.

You are our adored son, beloved brother of Michael, Darren, Mathew and Scott.

The love of Rylea’s life, and grandson to Evelyn and Myrtle, nephew and cousin and soon to be an uncle, of a big loving family.

Your passing has devastated us all.

Also his Nana Lewis and Grandma Fraser. He also leaves behind many uncles, aunts, cousins and other relatives and a multitude of friends.
