Condolence & Memory Journal

The obituary in the East Allen County courier that I read this evening said he was born in Tennessee. But when I was young ( I am now 76), our family lived at 816 west Superior. My brother,Max, was a good friend of a Bill and Leon Jones. I used to have a picture of Max, and Bill or Leon . My brother would have been 88 in August. The Jones lived in the first house across a van Buren in the 700 block of Superior. Sorry about your loss.
