Kathy Jones was in a very serious car accident on Monday August 22 in Crystal Lake. She was airlifted to Condell, is in the ICU and needs everyone's prayers. She is one of the sweetest, most caring, and generous women we all know.  The money will be used to assist Kathy and her family at this time.

Bill asked me to add this additional information.
The following information was shared beautifully by Kathy's sister Karen on Facebook.It is with a heavy heart that I share with everyone that Shayann Jones William C Jones Jr (Bill Jones)and Kathy Jones daughter passed away this morning at school in the arms of our dear friend Pat Willis-Langan. Shayann had not been sick nor did she have the mental capability of understanding what happened to her mom. I am holding to the belief that she is Kathy's angel and went in her place. Kathy showed signs today of improved alertness, movements and following some directions. She still has a long road ahead but her angel is watching.

It will break Bills heart to tell her when she is recovered enough to know. They have taken such wonderful care of Shayann all these years and loved her and made her so comfortable.

We had a great fundraiser for the Jones family. So many family, friends and former students and their families came out to support. So much love shown for the family.

The following is an update from Kathy's sister Karen.
We are so overwhelmed with the donations given for the Jones family. It amazes us that over 300 people, family, friends and strangers have given so generously. We can never thank everyone enough from the bottom of our hearts.
Kathy was moved to Holy Family Hospital in Des Plaines. She had the ventilator removed but now has a temporary tracheostomy. She also has a feeding tube in place for nutrition. Her awake periods overall are longer but she's not consistently awake . The doctors say this is to be expected and we are on the right track. They can't say how long it will take or when it will happen. Once she is awake and following more directions she will be moved to a rehabilitation center where she can participate in therapy. It is a slow and difficult process. You have all made it a bit easier with the love and support shown to our family. Thank you all.

Update:

A lot of people have been asking about arrangements for Shayann Jones. I talked Kathy's sister Karen, and she indicated that there would be a memorial service at a later date. For many who did not know Shayann she was a young lady who had severe cognitive and physical impairments, was medically fragile and was on oxygen full time for the past several years.

I only knew Shayann from photos of her with my grandson, Noah, but her radiant spirit shone forth. Someday we will be able to see her and others who are disabled in the here-and-now in their full, glorious, resurrected state and rejoice that we can know them.
