A Friend’s Memorial Service

Saturday, January 9

Tish Jones Memorial (2)We were pleased that Saturday, January 9, was an open day in our schedule so we could attend the Celebration of Life service for our friend Tish Jones at Davisville Church, Southampton, PA (near Philadelphia).

Tish Jones Memorial (16)We concluded that Tish was a strict and caring mother.

Tish Jones Memorial (17)There were also many testimonies from the audience – telling of her dedication to God, her family, and their church and friends.

Tish Jones Memorial (18)Howard and Tish have served Transport For Christ in many ways – first when Howard was a staff chaplain, then after he retired, he accepted the responsibility of interim president and Tish served in the International Office. When they retired from that responsibility, he became a volunteer chaplain on our chapel at the Petro (now Flying J) Travel Plaza near Elkton, Maryland.

He stopped serving on the chapel in Elkton several years ago when Tish needed his help.

We will miss her and pray that God will grant grace and peace to Howard and his family.

  1. I’m sorry to hear of your friend’s passing. When I saw the first picture in your post it brought back memories of visiting that church several years ago when our daughter lived in Southampton while attended college in Langhorne, PA.
