We love and miss you so much. Everyday I catch myself wanting to fix you a plate (supper) & sent it up to you.

We are sorry that we could not be there, our grief for our familys loss, and the loss of my sister cannot be properly expressed. The many years we shared with Effie, the many wonderful times together, and the joy that life can give will be our memories of our dear Sister. We know she rests now and has joined the many other family members, surely they are rejoicing. We will miss Effie, but she will remain in our hearts and prayers for ever. Callie & Dorothy Jones And sons.
