Mr. Jessie A. Wiggins formerly of Walterboro, South Carolina was born January 29, 1959 as one of 5 children born to Jesse and Emma Jane Wiggins and answered the masters call on March 30, 2020 in Washington DC. His legacy will forever be cherished by those who will always love and remember him.
Even though it has been said he is gone to soon, Jesse embarked upon the journey that God so lovingly prepared for him. He was educated in the public schools of Colleton County. As a teenager, Jesse had a love for gospel music. He sang in the church choir and in a gospel group along with his brother, cousins and friends.
During his journey, he attended Canaan Baptist Church in Round-O, SC. He later became affiliated with The Progressive Church of Jesus in Walterboro, SC under the leadership of Pastor Mazie Moultrie until he relocated to Washington, DC where he attended McKendree United Methodist Church where the Rev. David Hall is the Pastor.
While in Washington, DC, Jesse took many different paths to reach his destiny. On March 5, 1982, Jesse was united in marriage to Donna M. Brown. Their union brought into his life a beautiful, loving daughter.
Jesse was preceded in death by his wife and his parents.
Jesse leaves to cherish his precious memory one daughter; Chaneida Brown of Washington, DC, two sisters; Saundra (Michael) Drayton of Columbia, SC and Jessie (Michael) Barker of Fort Smith Arkansas, two brothers; Carl and Preston Wiggins both of Washington, DC and a host of nieces, nephews, family members and friends.
WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME
When tomorrow starts without me, And I'm not there to see; If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today;
While thinking of the many things, We didn't get to say. I know how much you love me
As much as I love you; And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name
And took me by the hand. She said my place was ready, In heaven far above; And that I'd have to leave behind,
All those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye; For all my life, I'd always thought
I didn't want to die. I had so much to live for, So much yet to do; It seemed almost impossible, That I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, The good ones and the bad; I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday, Just even for awhile, I'd say goodbye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized that this could never be; For emptiness and memories
Would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly things I might miss come tomorrow;
I thought of you, and when I did, My heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through heaven's gates
I felt so much at home; When God looked down and smiled at me from His great golden throne.
He said, "This is eternity and all I've promised you; Today your life on earth is past,
But here it all starts anew." "I promise no tomorrow, But today will always last; And since each day's the same day,
There's no longing for the past." "But you have been so faithful, So trusting and so true; Though at times you did do things,
You knew you shouldn't do." "But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free; So won't you take my hand
And share my life with me?" So when tomorrow starts without me, Don't think we're far apart for every time you think of me,
I'm right here in your heart
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted" Ecclesiastes 3:1-2
