If it was not for Mr. Jones I would not have graduated high school. That was the first thing that came to my mind when I first heard the news. I saw him about a year ago while visiting family in Beeville, and I regret not saying hello. He was an amazing person and teacher. My heart is heavy. Prayers go out to his family and to the community.
