My sincere condolences to the family of James Arnold Jones. Its hard to imagine life without our love one but take heart. Your loved one will never have to face the last enemy, death, ever again. In the meantime, the life he lived and his acts of faith live on until he stands up alive and whole in the Paradise. Jesus died so that we may live this is God's promise to us.
