  1. Dear Phyllis and family, How sad to hear of Mr. Jones’ passing. Our thoughts and prayers are offered for you in this time of sadness. I will always remember Tom (I would NEVER have dreamed of calling him anything other than Mr. Jones…) approaching me with that huge smile and that handshake that would just about numb my hand…. What a great guy he was and a cornerstone of St. Anastasia parish and of course his family… Our love and best wishes to you! We know we will all be reunited someway, somehow and that keeps us strong. Kindest regards, Jeff and Dana Francis and family

  2. Dear Phyllis and dear friends:”For those who love God all things work together unto good” God sent us His Son as a little child so that we would not be afraid; afraid to belief, afraid to hope, afraid to trust. We are a people of faith, we are a people of hope.Like Jesus, like us. Like Jesus,like Tom. Be well and be Blessed. My love to all of you. Peace. Fr. Pedro M. Lleo

  3. To The Jones Family, My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless Tom, he always made us smile! Blessings & Peace Stacy Long COR family

  4. To the Jones Family, Our condolences on the loss of your beloved father. We will miss seeing him after mass in the courtyard. We will miss him. May he rest in God’s eternal care. The Schultz and Acuña families

  5. To Phyllis and all the family, My condolences to you all. Tom was a great man, one to be remembered by many. I remember being at your house for Boy Scout Green Bar meetings when Tom was my scoutmaster, and respecting his leasership in our troop. I’m proud to say that I am still active in scouting with my son, mostly due to the great experinece I had as a scout because of leaders like Tom. Through my later involvement with him in COR and the K of C, I was able to appreciate him as a man, and always considered him to be one of the finest gentleman I’ve known. A great Catholic, showing his faith in his service to others he was an inpsiration to me.

  6. It was so wonderful to see all the beautiful family faces last week that are great-uncle Tom Jones’ legacy. His trademark glasses and big welcoming smile are memories that will always be with me. My sincere condolences to great-auntie Phyllis and the Jones family.

  7. Coleen, Maureen and Chris; you and the rest of your family are definitely in my prayers. I hope that you all are taking comfort in knowing that your dad is in a much better place. Take care and may God be with you all.
