I have so many fond memories of growing up as a kid in Odessa, Texas and spending time with the Jones family. My family (the Burleson's) and the Jones family spent many vacations and adventures together. I send much love to the family and will always cherish the time I got to spend with Roy, Quinette, Tanya and Kristie. I remember Roy as a kind and gentle man with nothing but love in his heart.
