My sincerest condolences go out to the Jones family.

Josh was one of the nicest guys I've ever interacted with and got to know. He was always friendly and easy to talk to.

One of my fondest memories of Josh is when he and Noah called me and Rebecca, and we were asking each other about what we liked and our favorite tv shows. This was back when we were using flip phones and calling after 9PM for free minutes, haha.

There's so much more I could share but there simply isn't enough room; Josh will truly be missed.

May God continue to comfort, and be with the Jones family and their loved ones.

I'm so sorry for your loss. When I heard about Martha's passing, I just couldn't believe my ears. She was such a sweet women.
I remember when I first came to Ohio ,and I met Martha, she was so welcoming, she had so much hospitality and made me feel so much at home.
I loved her for that. She loved her family and her little girls were her heart. I'm so sadden by this.

Family please be strong.
