  1. Dear Jones family, I am sorry for your loss and you have my deepest sympathy. The loss of a loved one can bring great pain and sorrow but you can gain comfort from Gods word the Bible. Acts 24:15 says, “There is going to be a resurrection” so you can see your dear loved one again and this is a promise from our loving Heavenly Father. I hope this was a source of comfort for the family.

  2. Dear Jones family ,
    Sweet Miss Bobbie it was a pleasure just to know her. She had a spirit that could lift you on your gloomiest days. As a teenager growing up my mom worked with her and I spent many hours at the store like most teens life was just hard at times.. she always had something funny to say or a wise crack to brighten the day. One of my favorite days was when she got me to dress up as a clown to hand out candy one year at Halloween it was so much fun. Her spirit can be seen through her children’s loving hearts and their kindness.
    Prayers , hugs and love to you all.
