Hello, my name is Peggy-Marie, I am the daughter of Maurice Jones who passed in 2017. My father had worked with Mr. DeVoti for years, in that time father often spoke of Mr. DeVoti with admiration. Mr. DeVoti would honor my father with his support and friendship. So today, I like to say, as my father if he were here, thank you for your friendship Brother, rest in sleep. From the Jones Family, our condolences and prayers are with you in Blessings and love.

I've known Billy since high school. He was always a good friend who would make me laugh when things got tough. I haven't seen him in about 8 years but we kept in touch on facebook. I will miss you terribly my friend.
