I am so sorry . I've known very few men I liked and loved more than Jonesy . He never knew the influence he was on me . Religion,politics ,family,Guns ,and humting . I ate a lot of your sweet pickles while talking about those subjects and I shot a lot of his reloads. Anthon was the real deal.I am a better man in knowing him. I look forward to seeing him and working with him on the other side.

Susan Jones and family,
Sorry for your loss. He was great to visit and a big tease to me when I lived at the Sands Apartments. My prayers are with all of you at this time. May you you be blessed.
