    Dear Family.
    My heart aches for all of you and what I know you have to go through. God be with you and help you climb this big mountain of life you have to climb. Hold to Gods hand and he will help you up it. My dear cousin Nolan if you ever need to talk in the weeks and month to come, I have a very understand ear. I understand what you all are going through and what you have been through.
    The years have gone so fast. Only seams like a little while that I went to TN with you two to get married.
    Paulette was so young to go. But I do believe God has a plan. This was a part of it. I love her. I love all of you, Am so sorry you have to loose one you love so dearly

  8. sherry jones says:

    thank you to all who have offered your prayers, it means more than you know we all know mom is well and no longer suffering… it was unfortunately faster than anyone could expect, but it is a blessing that she is at peace. Our mother made it clear that she wanted us to “get closer and take care of each other (especially dad)” Tammy (my sis) and I have spoken extensively and we will be here. Special thanks to all of our professional health care partners who have made it possible for us to be there when mom needed us. We all know she rests in the hands of our Lord

    Tammy, Dr. Jones & Family,

    Without knowing your mom it’s obvious that she was such a lovely woman. Your entire family is beautiful. Anyone who has had the pleasure to meet you…….is blessed, as you are so generous.You both found your calling as you have taken care of so many people. You always go above and beyond to do for others.
    God bless your family during this difficult time.
