Hey fellow Joneses:
Thanks for attending the wonderful and very comfortable reunion at Lutherhoma, owing in part to the excellent weather.? We were treated to many amusing and nail-biting stories from John C., Rachel, Frank and Bill and had great fellowship.? Saturday morning featured the 42nd Annual Jones Breakfast and the family dinner at noon.? Friday and Saturday nights featured the annual gospel singing, which included quality guitar accompaniment by James Briggs of Sperry, OK and Ronnie Jones of Canon (pronounced Canyon) City, CO, and vocals by everyone in attendance.
On a similar note:
Donnie Marrs, Steve Jones, Ron (Bunk) Jones and Larry Briggs have commissioned a small grave stone for the three Jones brothers who died at very young ages.? These three (James Paul, Joseph Marion Leo Critenton) are buried in the Chelsea cemetery.? Please email me your pledge if you wish to help pay the $400 cost and I will publish a list of donors later.? The four cousins mentioned above will donate about half the total cost.?
Donnie, Steve, Ron and Larry
