I Just left the Wifey. We went to Lunch at Babs, a jewel you found. The food was delicious! We had a good lunch and reminisced. We laughed about your inquisitive mind; how you walked around with a question mark over your head always prefacing your inquiries with, "let me ask you a question."
A real life Curious George.
I'll remember you for the boat load of laughs you gave me and take great solace in knowing your Spirit is alive and kicking . You have your wings now and I'm sure you are using them to check up on Love Ones and to protect your Family.
You are a man of men. I love you My Brother From A Different Mother!

Just hung up the phone laughing with Cornelius Guntz Jr. Reminiscing over the years kicking with for me a childhood homie. Way before the internet and I pads. When you would have to go to a friends house and knock on the door. Played football in the streets. Basketball in every corner of the world. Baseball , you name it we did it. Actually was there when he met the love of his life Benita Adams Jones. Deja Vu night club in the city. He went all the way to SF to meet his dream girl from Richmond. We always had a laugh about that night. We lost a patna but gained a sister as well. I’m saddened by the news but rejoicing Anthony Rook Jones knew Jesus. Out of all our years of hanging from Boys to Men. The conversations about Christ was the most rewarding. Going to miss you man. Until we team up together in Heaven on that Hoop court. Hold it down man. God has this. To your family I pray for comfort. So many years. So many memories. Cherishing every one of them. Thank u Cornelius Guntz Jr for the call and the laughs through the pain.

The End of the Road

Have you heard of the saying
Here today and gone tomorrow?
Anthony Jones life was just like that
Leaving many hearts in sorrow

On that dreaded evening of the crash
What could have been on his mind?
So full of life one minute
And the next his destiny was defined

No good byes at that moment
No apologies of any sort
He had come to the end of the road
Where there was no human support

It’s unfortunate that it happened this way
But it was written from the day of birth
We know not how when or where
When it’s our time to leave this earth

He had some insecurities
As we all do in life
He was the best father he could be
And he truly loved his wife

He devoted his time to the church
He helped those in need
When he smiled he lit up an entire room
He paid his debts indeed

Although it felt like it came without warning
There were signs all around
Some may have seen them and some may not
But his soul is heaven bound

To his family, be strong
He’s with the angels now
As bad as it may seem God never make mistakes
You will get through it somehow

And God was with him he wasn’t alone
When made his heavenly transition
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
He finally completed his mission

It’s been a hard week with lots of Loss. My heart goes out to Benita Adams Jones and her family, she is one of the kindest, most supportive people I know. Anthony always kept me laughing at church and while we were on vacation a few years ago. I will definitely miss seeing him around and being greeted by him. God we all need you!

I remember sitting on Imani Jones floor in her room with Tooda Elarms-Harris having regular teenage girl conversations. We didn't even know uncle Anthony was standing there the whole time... I remember us thinking we were going to be in trouble lol but he set right there and talked with us for hours. Giving us advice and making us laugh. Uncle Anthony, you will be truly missed and I'll never forget about finding those platform shoes with the fish at the bottom of them. We talked so much mess about them but you thought they were the coolest shoes ever lol. You may be gone but never forgotten

I was deeply saddened to learn of Anthony's death so, I am writing, both personally and on behalf of SOLID Personnel, to express my sincere condolences to you on the death of Anthony Jones. Your husband was highly respected by internal and field employees throughout the entire company and the clients we placed him with. Anthony fit in with us like a glove fits a hand- it is as if he had been a member of our team since the very beginning. And how do you achieve that fit? Well, it’s a culture thing; you share the same values- professionalism, honesty, integrity, commitment, enthusiasm, and passion. Anthony had all of these qualities in abundance- but above all, he was a really nice guy. We loved working with Anthony, as much as I know he loved working with us. We truly appreciated the dedicated service Anthony contributed and he was truly a valued member of the team. Besides being an excellent worker, he was always good-humored and considerate towards anyone he came in contact with. In the last 4 years of Anthony’s service, he was nothing but exceptional. The effects of his loss are being felt already by those of us who had the honor and pleasure of working with him. The sudden loss of life is a burden that no one should bear alone. SOLID would like to offer support to you and your family during this difficult time, we are ready to provide assistance to you in any way possible, including help associated with such matters as survivor benefits and payroll questions.

Words are inadequate at a time like this; however, please know that you and your family are in our thoughts. On behalf of all personnel of SOLID, we extend our deepest sympathy and most sincere condolences as we collectively mourn Anthony’s loss. Please let us know if we can help you in any way.

May Anthony’s memories give you the comfort and peace that you seek and may the soul of your loved one rest in peace.
