|We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2 Chorinthians 5:8|
It's been two years since we lost you.
We will never say goodbye
because we know this is not the end for us to see you.
You are in heaven where's there's no pain nor suffering.
We are happy for you, for you are with God.
Thank you Dad....
For always understanding, listening, caring, and loving us your whole life.
The greatest gift God gave us was YOU........
Our Father, Our Friend, Our DAD

"Happy Birthday...miss you soo much.
"Geneva, Jeff and I are so sorry to hear of your loss. This site tells us you are surrounded by love and that there are warm and capable arms to hold you in your sadness. Knowing you, we also know you will always find your way back to the happiest memories. We love you, Geneva. God bless."
"A TRIBUTE TO OUR GRANDFATHER ROSIAL C. JONES, SR. AKA “POP”
You taught us to have a strong heart and a positive mentality. A new generation of Jones' will be among us. We will teach your great- grandchildren the important lessons you shared with us and how you provided for our family. I'm sad you will not see me graduate, but I find comfort in knowing that you have graduated to a peaceful place in heaven. Your legacy will always live on. We will take care of those that are here and maintain the family just as you did. You live through us now, and I promise you, we will make you so very proud!!
Love, Lil Rod
As we speak with some
degree of grace,
Pop is now in a better place
Looking down on us with a
The love that once held our
Will continue to shadow us
through the worst
For in our lives you played
a huge part,
And we've had so many
memories That we'll keep
close to our hearts.
You're gone, but will never
We'll always be together
and your spirit will live in
each one of us forever.
So we will not cry or weep
at your grave,
But we will always
remember the love you
As you entrust us to use
the Jones family name.
Love you, Jamaal
I know you are looking down on us, telling us not to cry,
But it hurts so bad having to tell you goodbye.
Your departing has touched this family so deep
it’s really hard for me to sit here and not weep.
I know you don't want to see me with tears running down
my face, But I never thought you would leave me here and
go to a better place. I knew you wouldn't be with us
forever. So I'm standing here and keeping it together.
I know you're up there saving me a seat,
But until then I'm going to have our memories on repeat.
CJ & Dominique
You were there from the
You held each of our hands
with your heart.
With every step we took
you were there,
To share your passion, joy,
love and care.
It hurts that you’re gone,
But the memories we
share will never fade.
We know you're with GOD
and will continue to have
We love and miss you Pop
more than we can explain,
But all we can do now is
continue your proud
legacy as we carry on your
Love you always,
The connection we shared was more than could be put into words because it came from deep within our hearts and souls,
where you have created a foundation that can never be replaced. The last moments we shared showed how tight our connection was. God let me know that nothing could ever break the bond we shared, no matter the distance between us. I thank God for you. The conversation we had, no matter how short and sweet, you were always happy to hear from me and I was always happy to talk. I will hold those last words in that special place you have and will always hold in my heart. I made a
promise to you Pop-Pop, a promise that will not be broken or forgotten! Through you, I am a Jones, proud to be one, and I will make you proud! I love you Pop and will carry you with me always.
Forever yours, Victoria
I appreciate all that you have done for my family. You were a great father to my mother and treated her like she was one of your own providing her brothers for protection and the support that she deserves. You treated me as your own grandchild and you will be truly missed.
Always in my heart and never forgotten - Sieaun"
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
I pray Gods peace in our lives as we allow our hearts to remember the laughter and good times that God so generously allowed us to have with him. We do not know, the time, place or day that God will call us home,but we do know that God has prepared a place in Heaven to call home. God bless!"
"The candle I light represents the light that shone from you my brother that we shared thru life becoming the Men that we became with the blessing of God and his divine wisdom. With Love and much respect."
"This is such a beautiful memorial.Geneva, I will continue to pray that you and the entire family will gain strength in knowing that our God will enfold you with his loving arms. If there is anything that I can do for you please don't hesitate to call me"
"Rosial favorite bible verse:
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
