Dear Uncle Charles, this is Charles Jones, Your Brothers' son, I remember the tragedy and the terrible sadness our family went thru. Although I only know you from the beautiful stories my Mother has told me about you, and the large foot steps you left for us to try to fill. I came from California to see were Grandma Jones and grandpa Jones and you are buried and I see aunt Opal grave and the date she died was 1 day before my father was born. My heart just broke to know that grandma lost her little girl 1 day before your brother was born. So much tragedy over the course of time and yet we still go forward. I miss Buster, my father, and I hope I can make you both proud, but I will never fill the giant foot prints you both left and I am proud to be your nephew. I drove into Connersville and I mention your name and 3 people remembered you and every where I went someone remembered you, 48 years after you left us. I have Grandma and grandpa picture hanging in my room, and Jeff has been out to California working with me, I lost my brother Chris 2 years ago and now I am trying to guide our family the best I can. I pray for guidance and forgiveness for I cannot meet the high standards you all have left but I will will do my best. I will always come by and see you all every year I come out here to hunt and one day we will all be together and I wish I could say or come up with words that would make sense of why you were taken from us but god works in ways we on earth can never understand. I will passed down the stories my mother told me and I have your bible from the years you were in WW!! and I see your notes inside. Grandma kept everything about her boys in a wooden box that I found and the love is so touching. I say goodbye my uncle and grand parents and aunt Opal, Your life is not forgotten and the Jones family is still holding their heads up high because of all of you. I will see you next year. Love Charles Jones 10/28/17
