"Dignity without Compromise"



Harry R. Jones

Harry R. Jones went to be with our lord at 2:45 am October 26, 2005. Born on April 4, 1925 in Grand Junction, CO He lived a long glorious life of eighty years and six months. Harry passed away with the same dignity and grace he had during his life on earth.

"He did not go alone in to the "valley that’s unknown" He gently took death by the hand and journeyed to "the promised land"…And in the heavenly home above he waits to welcome those he loves."
