There will never be another Jody Jones! I will always treasure all the great memories of hanging out with Jody, Bill and Wes during all those great get togethers with our parents. Jody was always the life of our parties and always kept things interesting and entertaining. I thank you for all of those great times and will miss you. My heart breaks for the entire Jones Family as I know his absence is felt. Please use all those great memories to carry you.

Thank you Jody for being a supportive, dedicated, and courageous friend to me. I'll always remember the great times we endured together at the various volunteer fire houses; whether it involved working the Bingo Hall, preparing those massive dinners, running calls, or just hanging out shooting pool. You were a better pool player than I was my friend. Missed by many but never, ever forgotten. I will always cherish the memories we had together. You have a great family and a wonderful wife we all knew to be our friend. Thank you for being my friend. God Bless good buddy.
