My Grandpa Jones died today. I'm so happy that he went peacefully in his sleep. I'm doing well... I'm glad to be here with my family.
This picture is of Grandpa and his wife with his great grandkids (from a few years ago- that's baby Orion in Florence's arms!). He loved his family and we love him right back... even though he always picked on us :)
