Remembering Uncle Artis

This fall, we have been thinking of, honoring and remembering Artis Jones (July 1927-October 2010), the baby brother of my grandmother. He is my great uncle. When I was a child attending St. John the Baptist Catholic School, he helped to sell raffle tickes twice a year. Back then, there were phases during which he took me to school there daily, along with his granddaughter, my cousin LaTongia, and his grandson Lamont, and also took me to school at St. Jude some as a junior and senior. I appreciate all of the ways in which he supported my education. He was a blessing. His family loved him so and will miss him always. God bless.
