The Dalles Memorial fund
To the editor:
This past Friday, Oct. 4,, a good friend of mine was killed by a train, as mentioned in the paper, Jay Jones. This community has lost a young life way too soon. Those of you that knew him, know how caring, fun, and compassionate he was. He loved life, even though he had hard times. He almost always had a smile on his face, and loved to laugh and always had one foot in front of the other. Always was a go-getter, and was a hard worker.
My family has opened up a “Jay Jones Memorial Fund” at Rivermark Community Credit Union, to help with his expenses, and what ever the family may need.
I’ve had the privilege of knowing Jay since I was young. And I can honestly tell you that he is gonna be so missed, his personality was up and beyond.
May you fly with the angels and protect those who love you. RIP my friend. Until we meet again.
