Sending love to everyone.
To the Jones Family,
My sympathy to you on the loss of your husband/father. As I told Teresa, I remember Mr. Jones as being a tall, strong presence while also being a quiet man. I offer my condolences on your loss.
One of the best parts of growing up was visiting Uncle Ray, Aunt Edna and hanging out with the cousins during summer vacation. A great memory was the Jones family reunion with the grandparents in Bonne Terre in the mid 60's. A not so great memory was Ray and Edna's reaction after I got lost on a bicycle around Hazelwood and the police were called to find me. A nice part of growing up was finally being old enough to sit with Ray, Edna and my parents (Cliff and Cecily) and enjoy listening to grown up conversations. Ray, Edna and the cousins were the relatives we got to know best, from either side of our family, and were a great influence on me.
