I was very sad to learn of Les's passing. My prayers go out to his family. Les and I worked together at EG&G many years ago, and he was a good friend. We kept in touch, meeting annually for lunch with other friends. He will be sadly missed.

Dear Hugh, Kim and family, I received Hugh's letter today, and wish to express my sincerest condolences. I am praying that the Lord will comfort your hearts with His peace at this sad time. May the memories of your father/grandfather bring you much joy in the days ahead. I met Les about 34 years ago at the former EG&G; my office was next to his in Accounting. I was only in my 20's, but Les made a huge impression on

I was saddened to hear of Les' passing. He was a kind and generous man who always brightened my day. It was a pleasure working with him at Catholic Charities or bumping into him around town on Saturday morning. He loved his family dearly and my condolences go out to them on this loss.

To the family of our dear neighbor, Mr. Jones-
We have lived across the street for the past twenty five years, have read your father's books and have always enjoyed his ready smile, his gracious way of remembering and asking about every detail of what's going on in our own children's lives, and his tireless spirit. We will be keeping him him in our prayers, and know he is having a wonderful reunion with his lovely wife. We also express our condolences to you in your grief, and please know you are in our prayers as well.

We became fast friends over Saturday morning breakfast at Friendly's. We only knew Les for about two years but felt as though we had known him forever. We will miss his warm smile and sincere kindness.

So sorry to hear about Mr. Jones. He was a neighbor and I was friends with his daughter, Lesslee who predeceased him. My condolences to the family.

I had the honor of working with Mr. Jones in two different capacities. A number of years ago he visited Glen Urquhart School and spoke to students for a Veterans' Day Assembly and more recently through some work connected with the State House. Both times, he was inspirational and I had as recently as last week thought about stopping in to see him just to get a little shot of the Mr. Jones "Joie de vive". I was deeply shocked and saddened to read his obituary in the Salem Evening News. A bright light has gone away.

To Kim and the Jones family, words can not express my sadness for your loss. Your Father was a bright light in my life and now he is with the lord. May his legacy be your guiding light thru this time of sorrow.

To the Ulysses Jones Family and especially, his son Kim. Always remember the times when your dad held your hand when you were little. Always remember the times when your dad had to punish you or give you a stern talking to. Always remember him and speak of him frequently and he will always be with you. Finally, remember the old saying, "The nut never falls far from the tree", but not in a derogatory view, but rather and most
