Sad to learn of the loss of Mr Jones, my 3 sisters and I met him in 2009 when our mum was nominated for a Deadly but sadly passed before the awards night. Us 4 flew from Roebourne in the Pilbara all the way to Sydney to receive onstage an Honourary Deadly Award which recognized her 40years in Health. We met him at that time and he was very welcoming and took the time to yarn with us. We very much appreciate him and the Vibe team for doing that for our mum.
47 is too young to be leaving us, it was nice to know him.
