I miss you Mom. I hope you knew how much I loved you. Should have told you more often. I know you are resting and at peace now, and that brings me comfort. I just need you to send me some of your strength now to mend my broken heart. Love you forever, Ella

My deepest condolences to the entire Jones Family on the loss of Mrs. Jones. I was Leslie's best friend in Lima Co. 3/1 and was with him when he died. He is forever in my thoughts, and I miss him. Ken Prewett notified me today of Mrs. Jones passing. I wish I could have paid my respects in person.
