At around 1am on January 8th, 2017 my parents house caught on fire with my parents inside. My father heroically managed to pull my mother out of the house before collapsing outside but not before they both suffered fatal injuries. My father passed away exactly 24 hours later at 1:01AM January 9th. As I write this at noon on the same day, my mother's pulse is fading and she isn't expected to survive the day. Nearly all of their money and possessions were in that house. We loved our parents as much as children could.
We are asking for just the money for my mom when she passes and any more towards rebuilding the house would be greatly appreciated. God help us through this awful time.

We have collected all that we need to bury our parents. We are forever grateful to those that have helped us with this extremely heavy burden. We still need to pick out a headstone and settle the estate. Hopefully once we get our loving parents into the ground things get easier.

The viewing is between 5 and 7pm at Brantley funeral home. The Funeral is Saturday at 10am at Brantley funeral home. There is an after funeral memorial service at Cedar view Baptist Church at 2pm.

We set up the arrangements for my parents today. The viewing is Friday between 5 and 7 pm at Brantley Funeral home. The Funeral is Saturday at 10am at Brantley too.

those of who do not know where that is but want to attend, it is located near hwy 305 and goodman rd. The address for the funeral home is 6875 Cockrum rd, Olive Branch, MS 38654. We still need quite a bit to finish paying for the double funeral. Anyone that wants to donate and doesn't want to go through gofundme can take money directly to the funeral home and let clerk know that you want to contribute to the funeral of James and Sharon Jones.

A little before 9pm my mother joined my father in heaven. This is so heartbreaking and devastating to all of those that knew my parents. They were some of the most wonderful people you could meet. I have no clue how to live without them, they were who I turned to if I needed help with something or just needed to talk. They adored all of their grandchildren!

This is my Mother, Sharon Jones, with two of her 3 grandchildren. She loves all of her kids and grandkids so so so much! So much that she is still fighting for dear life. She has been taken off of life support but is still breathing and everything on her own. She's trying to be that 5%! The doctors say that this is going to be a very long death because she's refusing to die. I love you so much Momma!

My deep condolences to the entire family for your loss . I am convinced that our loved ones are in God's memory for the resurrection hope of Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29. God promises to return their life and he will do so under his new system of things (Revelation 21:3,4 )I hope that these promises bring the family and friends comfort and hope. Prayers to all.
