My Friend Davis Jones

On November 10, 2012 we received an email from a school friend of Davis, Ed Jackson, that touched us very much.

Dear Jones Family,

I have been crying today reading this website. Tears of remembrance and tears of joy having known Davis. Something I want people to know about Davis - he was a kind person. He was a good artist in Mr. Ciganko’s art class. Davis encouraged me as a “fledgling artist.” He used to say, “Ed you are really good at this.” He was always encouraging me. It was because of his validation that I made art my minor at Bowling Green State University. I am a twin too and Davis always alluded to it. Davis was my friend and had a way of making people feel special.

I never got over Davis’ death. But he always has been in my heart.

My mom, Phyllis Jackson, loved the Jones family dearly.

Forever Remembering,

R. Ed Jackson
