Celebrating the life of Katie P. Jones
Thank you for signing Katie P. Jones's Guestbook
I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief during this difficult time.

My condolences to all family and friends of Katie Jones. I will always remember her many kindnesses to me after my mother died. She was also instrumental in honoring my parents for their service to Free Union OFWB Church back in 2002, including preparing an album of remembrance for them. She also prepared one for me on my first birthday following my mother's death. Katie worked tirelessly and creatively to make the Luther Heath Bible Class fun as well as a means of service for the entire church, even though, it was composed of senior church members.
