  • Dear Hawthorn Family, It is comforting to be in such good hands and caring staff when we had to say goodbye to our wife, mother, and grandmother. Jenette Jones was truly our Wonder Woman, so full of life, caring, loving and devoted christian. Yur lovely funeral home and family put our mind at ease all during her funeral process. We can't tell you how many members of our family have held their services there, but it stands to reason after witnessing it personally this past weekend. Ms. Alice is a treasure and is so great with people especially the children. It is always difficult to have them at events like this, but she understood their curiosity, lovingly answered their questions, and then kept them entertained-We Truly Appreciate that! This note is to also thank you for the delicious BBQ tray waiting for us. After a long drive from Houston with so many emotions, it was nice to just be together, sharing this meal at our hotel. Thank you for providing it and for her lovely care she received and lovely service. Also Please thank the one who did such a good job on her hair ad makeup. It captured how we would like to remember her, how she was most of her life. It was a beautiful, natural and above all peaceful way which made it easier on the family. Sincerely, The Jones Family
