Sending thoughts and prayers to my favorite niece, Autumn Parden, and the rest of the Jones family. I enjoyed Sylvia when I visited her on trips to Ohio. She was lovely generous lady. On visits I never left her home without a gift of something she had made herself.

Jones Family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Mrs. Jones. What an awesome person she was. You were all very fortunate to have such a wonderful Mother who was an outstanding mentor and taught her family all the valuable tools they would need in their life. May God wrap his loving arms around all of you during this most difficult times.
In Christian Love, Pandora
