To Donna and Family,
My sincerest condolences to you and your family on Carl's passing. He was such a good Christian man. I always enjoyed seeing him at Church when you wintered in Yuma. My prayers are for God's love and peace to surround you during this difficult time. We know Carl is now enjoying the comforts of his new Heavenly home. Lynette Reynolds

Donna, Kathy and Mike,

I think Carl is remembered universally for his jokes, but I also remember the times he took us on "adventures" up at the Monument. He was the one that showed me the slide down the north side of the bluff (which I'm sure is verboten now), and a walk through the 'badlands'. He was a good guy, full of life, full of happiness, full of smiles, and always willing to share. My condolences on his passing. Pat Carlson

I have a lifetime of memories of Carl E Jones aka Uncle Darty. Carl always had a joke or funny story to share when he’d stop by for a visit and a glass of iced tea. Carl used to make home movies of us kids growing up...such fun! Our families spent so much time together out at Valley View Knoll. Carl was flat footed, but that man could run...put us kids to shame! Carl and Donna have always been my other Dad & Mom. Mike & Kathy have always been my other brother & sister. Carl & Donna have always been there our family through the joys and the sorrows. I know there is a big homecoming going on in heaven right now...Uncle Darty I miss you, but we’ll all be together one day ...until then we’ll continue loving and caring for Donna June.
PS...keep the folks in heaven laughing...I know you will!

Love you..... Karen & Roy Jones
