Papa I'm still loss for word that you are gone. I know God has a plan for everything and I accepts that he has called you home to be with him. You were a loving husband, father, grandfather and dear friend. I know you are happy to be in the arms of the Lord and grandma is happy to see her Irvin Jones. I will miss our everyday evening talks but I know I will see you again. Thank you for being the best grandpa a girl could ever dream of. Love you for life! RIP Papa... Love you Shauna and family

To Joe Boy, Lois, and Janet our hearts are heavy in the passing of Irvin (or as I fondly called him Pop Staples). Rosie and I will always remember him as one of Daddy's best buddies. We are praying for all of you and know that he is in a better place; he with Evelyn now. He missed her so much. Pop Staples said HELLO to Daddy (John) and Mother (Maxine). To God be the Glory. Becky and Rosie
