  1. I’m so sorry for you loss. I used to visit Jone when I was little and she did babysit me. She was a very kind person and I always enjoyed going over to the farm as a little girl. She always had a smile on her face. My mom used to tell me how much Jone enjoyed having me at her home on the farm. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. Sending hugs!
