Monday morning Edit: Because of the horrendous storm that has swept Texas and other Gulf Coast states, the funeral scheduled today for Justin has been postponed. A private funeral will be held Wednesday or Thursday, with a memorial service following in a week or two.
(Thanks to Arthur Hodges III and James Ghiloni for this information.)
Let’s continue to pray for this family, and all families so affected. Doubtless there are many others beside my friends, who in the midst of sorrow over the death of loved ones, have also had to face the challenge of this devastating storm.
Mailing Address for the Jones family.

Within the past couple of hours I sadly learned of the death of Justin Jones, the 30 year-old-son of my friend Dayna Jones. Two days ago, he collapsed in his home, was rushed to the hospital in Houston and never regained consciousness. He was kept alive on life-support until his parents and his brothers could make it to the hospital.
Justin married just two years ago, and has a nine-month old baby. He died from two brain aneurysms.
My friend, Nita Hodges, the sister of Dayna Jones, flew to be with her sister yesterday just before the Houston airport closed because of the approaching hurricane.
Please pray tonight for this dear family. They will not be leaving Houston at this time–are hunkered down there, racked with grief.
Pray for their safety from the storm, for solace, and for peace.
