    While I did not have the pleasure of knowing Mr. James T. Jones, I have been honored to work with his son Rick for the last few years now. Rick, I want to send my prayers and love to you and your family during such a rough time. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to help you.

    “Oh Lord, what can I say? I’m so sad that you went away.”

    You were a noble man with a heart of gold. You were a true hero in my eyes, and that will never leave my vision of you. You were always taking care of your family, friends, and even strangers before yourself. To me, you measured higher than Mother Theresa, who was also a very generous and heroic person. Your family loved you more than you will ever be able to know. And even though my poem says ?don?t cry for me? the tears we shed are for your memory, your soul, your safety, and your beloved wife. I know you will still be taking care of us while in Heaven, gardening in green pastures, but we will miss your wonderful way of making the Earth, or at least your own back yard a little greener and more beautiful than the next. May peace be with you as you make Heaven an even more beautiful place. I love you Pa, and you will remain deep in my soul until the day I see you again.
