What a life.


Glen got up early Saturday morning to get ready to go to Spokane. It was a race against time to see his beloved father one last time before Joseph Jones went home to be with Christ Jesus. It took Glen about 5.5 hours to arrive only to arrive 5 minutes after the death of his dad. It was meant to be.

Joe Jones was a model husband, father, grandfather & father in law. He will be greatly missed and always be loved.

What a life. What a man.

"Our prayers have all been answered. I finally arrived.
The healing that had been delayed has now been realized.
No one's in a hurry. There's no schedule to keep.
We're all enjoying Jesus, just sitting at His feet.

If you could see me now, I'm walking streets of gold.
If you could see me now, I'm standing strong and whole.
If you could see me now, you'd know I've seen His face.
If you could see me now, you'd know the pain is erased.
You wouldn't want me to ever leave this place,
If you could only see me now.

My light and temporary trials have worked out for my good,
To know it brought Him glory when I misunderstood.
Though we've had our sorrows, they can never compare.
What Jesus has in store for us, no language can share.

You wouldn't want me to ever leave this perfect place
If you could only see me now
If you could see me now
If you could only see me now."

Oh, Sonya. I'm so sorry. Please pass on our condolences to Glen. I'm sure that was so hard on him to get there after the fact.
