Jones, Douglas “Tom”'s Guestbook

Dear Sally, Tommy, Mike & families, With heartfelt sympathy, as I remember and honor a life well lived. As a life long friend of my parents, I remember the roar of laughter coming from the room whenever they were together. Jayhawkers playing bridge & delighting each other with news of their families and reliving their days of glory. Tom lived a charmed life: marrying the woman he loved, raising two wonderful sons, relishing the joys of being a grandparent all while being surrounded by great friends. Tom will be missed but mostly he will be remembered for his kind heart & boisterous laugh. I hope your memories give you comfort in this time of sadness. My love to all. Marlene Asel Craig

Dearest Sally, Mike, and Tom, Melissa called me right away when she heard from Mike about Tom's passing. Honestly, I had to wait a bit before I reached out as this hit home for me. I know he is deeply missed by you, your kids and grandkids - what an incredible family tree of Jones's he has left behind. Please send my heartfelt love and hugs to them. What I remember most about Tom is his incredible laughter, wit, kindness, love, intelligence AND of course his fierce Charades competitive nature - LOL. It hurts so to lose someone so incredibly special and not see them or hear their voice every day. I hope that all those wonderful memories you created with him will eventually fill a void and become treasures of your heart. With much love, Amy

Dear Sally and family, Sending my words of sympathy to you all at this difficult time. I met Tom 5 or 6 years ago at the Liberty Community Center at the Bridge group that met on Tuesday and Thursday. He was a good bridge player and always fun to play with. He was never critical or ones playing, and patient with all. We have missed him, but he will not be forgotten. And Sally I appreciated your donating elastic when it was in short supply during my "mask making" last year. And you are a joy to talk with on the phone. "May the memories that mean the most to you all live forever in your heart". With Love and Sympathy, Emily Sharp
