The Joneses are lifelong family friends.  I can still perfectly see Frieda sitting at our piano 50 years ago playing and singing a favorite gospel song.  I am so grateful to have spent a short while visiting and praying with Frieda on my last visit home.  I have been thinking of and praying for Bill and the family especially today as you tentatively bid farewell to a beautiful wife, mother and grandmother.  I know you have so many lovely memories to cherish and reflect upon.  Sending my very best love and sincere condolences.
