Family, friends and community leaders gathered on Saturday, Oct. 15, at the outdoor repast celebrating the life of Jesse B. Hendrick, Viet Nam war veteran and husband of community activist Josie Dean Hendrick. Mr. Hendrick passed after a long illness that ended with a stroke. He died in hospice care at home on Oct. 10. He was 80 years old.
The repast was festive with music, food and even a bounce house for the kids to enjoy. Dozens of people dropped in to fellowship and pay their respects to the family. The celebration resembled many that have been hosted by Josie Dean over the years that she has lived in Rockdale County. Photos by Glenn L. Morgan/ocgnews.com
