Dear Sarah and Shep, Your parents were a part of my parents Joan and Ben Jones' lives for many years, first with Christ Church, and becoming good friends for decades, including "Club." I remember your mother as being a lovely woman, and hearing about what a fine cook she was. Mother would rave over her culinary skills. I'm so sorry for your loss, and may your family be comforted in the memories she left.

- Julia Jones Williams, Isle of Hope, Georgia
