  1. Dear Jim and Jerry,
    I just received an email from Kay. I was just thinking about your mom this weekend as I often do, and now my thoughts and prayers are with you.
    I wish I could have been there to celebrate her very good life.
    She inspired me as a teacher because she was always so soft spoken and sweet and I imagine she helped so many special needs
    students with her patience and knowledge.
    She was also very helpful in advising me about what was happening state wide in education and in ways to help my retirement years.
    But most of all I’m thinking of what wonderful sons you have been for her and most especially since she lost her husband, your dad, and another one of most clever and enjoyable uncles….very near this time of year, now over twenty years ago.
    You have been so attentive, gentle and thoughtful, and always wanted the best for her as she did for both of you. Your dad would be so pleased and proud of you too.
    She was proud of your character as well as your considerable accomplishments. I hope you will find some comfort in those memories as you’re surely feeling a major void in your hearts and minds right now for one who has loved you every day of your lives.
    You and your children, nieces and nephews, her Browning family,and all who knew and loved her are in my thoughts, and in my prayers …..’til we all get together again.
    love you,
    cousin Jennifer

I know how much you will miss her, but be consoled with the assurance that she is with your beloved Dad (Uncle Buddy to all us Paducah Joneses) and free of all pain and suffering forever. I thank God for the promise that we will see them again and have a great Jones reunion around our Lord’s throne. May God comfort you and all your family members as only He can. Cousin Roy A.

    Thinking of you this morning. So sad that Della, the last of the 10 Browning children, has passed on. I feel assured that Stella, Murrel, Estey, Irene, Tom, Ed, George, Weldon and Benson were all there to meet her and that they are reunited again.
