Condolences to the family. Reverend Jones lived a long life of significant impact on many people. His love and his light was big and bright. and I bear witness that all of you mirror this same quality in your own lives and in the way that each of you loved and supported him through his season of ill health. The body gives way to the effects of time, but the Reverend Jone's soul is eternal, and so he lives without suffering with a great reward. I believe he continues to watch over, protect, and laugh with all of you from the unseen.

Be encouraged. Craig.

My condolences to Peggy and the girls. I have very fond memories of Rev Jones as Pastor or Lemuel Haynes in Jamaica, New York. He and my mother, Naomi Sebastion were very good friends and enjoyed many wonderful moments. God blessed him with longevity which attests to his good spirit and strong faith. He was a good man. He will be missed.
