I just got off of Instant Messenger with Jeff Jones. He is home for the holidays right now, but is going back next week to the hospice.
His prognosis is not good. He was given only 1-2 more months to live. I asked him what he would like me to tell all of you, and this is what he typed:
He also had this to say....Tim: Is there anything you would like me to share with the guys at net-chess?
Jeff Jones: eh just tell them i am home for the holidays and then i go back and from my diagnosis i wont be home again.....
Tim: Bummer, man....how much longer, do you think?
Jeff Jones: 1-2 months ?!
Jeff Jones: from what i hear
Not much else to say right now, except to keep Jeff and his family in your prayers. He also shared this with me:
Jeff Jones: make sure u tell all hi
Jeff Jones: especially jonathan and mike
Tim: Ok, bro....will do.
Jeff Jones: take good care please
Tim: Yes, you too, Jeff.
Jeff Jones: thanks
Please post your thoughts and comments to Jeff on this thread. I will give him the link to this thread so that he can read them, or perhaps his brother will print them out and bring them with him to the hospice.
Jeff Jones: mom died labor day
Tim: Oh no....
Tim: I am sorry....
Jeff Jones: yea life is grand
Thanks, my friends,
