James Mark Jones of Madisonville, passed away Tuesday, March
26, at his home.
He was 49.
Survivors include: his loving parents-J. D. and Anna Lee
Brother and sister-in-law-Robert and Laura Jones;
Nephews-Chandler and Jonathan Jones; and
A loving extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins.
Mark was one of Godís special angels. He was born with a serious brain injury
that confined him to his home and left him unable to communicate other than a
laugh when he was excited and a loving look with his big blue eyes. Mark was blessed with parents who chose
to care for him and love him despite his disabilities. He received 49 years of a motherís and
fatherís devotion to his every need.
We do not understand why things happen the way they do, but we have
faith and trust in Godís sovereign plan for our lives. Mark will most definitely have a
special place in heaven. ďBut I
would not have you be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep,
that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and
rose again, so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.Ē I
