Condolences for the family of “William “Bill” Jones, Jr.”

Condolence from Sandra Nabozny on October 17th, 2018 8:12 pm

Condolences and prayers are being sent to the Jones family during this sad time. Mr. Jones was my mailman and bus driver for many years when I was young. He always was nice and seem to take his work quite seriously. I grew up with the Jones siblings–friends mostly with Donna and Bill Jr. , and I knew the other sisters also. This is a very hard time. Try to remember all the good times you had with Bill and cherish those memories.

To the family of Bill Jones:

My husband Harvey and I were sorry to read about Bill’s passing. We knew Bill from the halls of Matulaitis where my mother lives. He will be missed in the Matulaitis community.
