Barnes Crossing of Starkville is a used car dealership located in Starkville, MS. Two years ago, two college students, Josh Kilpatrick and Jessie Marshall, enjoyed a relaxing 4 day cruise through the Caribbean aboard the ship named Sovereign of the Seas. On the last night, Jessie met Josh in the lobby, wanting his advice about a purchase she was making. Five minutes turned into two hours, but after two hours, Jessie was ready to leave. She said a fast goodbye, and was gone, leaving no telephone number, home address, or even a last name. Josh knew that he had met the girl he wanted to marry. Jessie was not nearly so certain. She was about to begin Dental School at the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky, and had no interest in trying to maintain a long-distance relationship. Josh was from the small town of Monroeville, Alabama. After his graduation from the University of Southern Mississippi, he would join the Army as a Warrant Officer, and over the next two years complete flight school to be a UH-60M Blackhawk pilot.
