Arthur (Joe) and Ruth JonesDear Julia,Peter and Joey Dad and I were so sorry to learn of your loss. We enjoyed his many visits to the farm.He was a kind and caring soul with a wonder laugh.Dad was telling me of one of the trips out here to cut wood. Dad had an old brush pile. They ended up burning it and when it was down to embers Jim pulled out a portable barbeque put the hot embers in it and cooked everyone sausgaes on a bun. Know we will be keeping you in our thoughts.
