Mr. Jones was one of my first patients when I came to LaGrange over 20 years ago. Not many capture your heart the way that he did. He trusted me completely and we got through so much over the years. He and his wife and children became like family to me. It has been so incredibly difficult to let him go but I know that he is completely well now. I'll never forget his smile even when he didn't feel well, his New York accent and his special wink as if to say "it's all okay". To his family I love you all and you're in our prayers. To Mr. Jones I will forever miss you and will always be "your girl".
