    I love MS. Jones as a friend, and a patient. I will miss those good sweet potato pies. As a friend and a patient, she will forever be in my heart. I will continue to keep the Jones family uplifted in prayer.

    GIVE ALL YOUR WORRIES AND CARES TO GOD FOR HE CARES ABOUT YOU (1 PETER 5:7). MY PRAYER IS THAT GOD WILL HOLD YOU EXTRA CLOSE RIGHT NOW, FOR HE HAS IT ALL IN CONTROL.

    A sweet person no matter where she was, always the same. Though we know heaven has welcomed a very special person, our hearts still feel the sorrow.
