I grew up with Mary Ellen Jones and her brother Charlie Nolan Jones, Jr. because they were my paternal 1st Cousins and lived with our family at different times. They are both at an eternal rest now but, I will never forget either one of them. I was expecting to see Mary Ellen and Rick Chapman at our Grant-Jones family reunion 3 September 2022 at Harmony Baptist Church near Madison, Florida. Her father Charlie Nolan Jones, Sr. is at rest at the cemetery there. I'm so sad that you are no longer with us, Mary Ellen. I love you still.
