I lived across the street from the Jones' family and was David's friend from a very early age. Amos loved musical instruments and fixing cars and he taught me and David so much about both. I could tell from an early age that he was a great man because he commanded great respect without ever raising his voice. I know where he is now and hope to see him again.

Dear Family and Friends of Amos,
Don and I have had the joy of knowing Amos for many years. Don and Amos played for many years together in several different musical groups. His love of music followed him everywhere in his life. Amos was such a kind and gentle soul and he always made everyone in his presence feel so special. We will miss him so very much. The angels in Heaven are surely blessed to have Amos and his music with them now. Thoughts and Prayers with You All.
In God's Love

Life is the greatest gift that God has given us. Death is only a bridge towards eternal life with God. Heaven is rejoicing for another soul has finally reached his true home and become a member in the band. Our deepest sympathy to the Jones family.
