  5. Bob our prayers and thoughts are with all of you, during this trying time. We love you and are keeping you in our prayers.

  6. Having lost my father at a the age of 5, I did not know what it was like to have a good father in your life until I met Charlotte, Cynthia and Cathy . Through their memories, I learned what a good father was. Then later I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Elliot and started to see for myself what a good father was by seeing his continuing care and nuturing of his children along with his wife Barbara. Because of the work I do child support, in working cases and seeing the mentality of many of the young men i met, I often reflected that they don’t make men like Mr. Elliot anymore. Therefore, I along with his family look forward to the fulfillment of John 5: 28, 29 when we will see our dead loved ones again. When they are resurrected in God’s new world where “no resident will say I am sick”Isa. 33:24

  7. TO THE JONES FAMILY, MY CONDOLENCES TO YOU ALL. MR. JONES WAS MY MATH TEACHER IN JUNIOR HIGH. RIP, MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU ALL.

  8. First, my condolences to Ms. Bob and the Jones family. Having went to school with the girls, and looking fondly upon the brothers–Mr. Jones was a model person. He not only taught me Math, but taught me the value of doing your very best in EVERYTHING you do. I am forever grateful for the opportunity that allowed our paths to cross so many years ago. Be strong everyone. Know that he & Ms.Bob left a very positive mark on the Franklin community as well as, I’m sure, the Stone Mountain community. I used a lot of the methods he used to teach and the compassion he showed me and A LOT of others with the children that have crossed the threshold of my classroom. I still use them to help students in my capacity as a counselor. Thank you ever so much, Mr. Jones!!! He will be truly missed. Take care. Love to you all.

  9. To the Jones Family: You and your family have our deepest sympathy. Mr. Jones was a GREAT teacher. May he rest in Peace. We will continue to pray for you and the Family. Take Care,

    The Charles Family – Mary Hines Elementary School
