Saturday, February 11th the wife of Charles Glenn Jones received a phone call that no family member ever wants to receive. The vessel, FV Destination, that Charles was working upon, and had been for many years, was considered missing. As minutes rolled into hours, and hours felt like an eternity all signs are pointing to no possible chance of survival. Coastguard Crews and volunteers have been searching for nearly 24 hours, the ship has been officially declared sunk, and no crew members are expected to have survived.
As in all walks of life, Rosalie and her family believed they had time. Time to plan, time to love, and time together. Rosalie and Charles had decided when he returned from this trip that they would finally get a life insurance policy on him, just in case, unfortunately reality had other plans and the Jones family is left enduring much pain and anguish.
Rosalie has worked primarily as a stay at home Mom, raising her beautiful 11 year old daughter, whom lost her biological father nearly 3 years ago, their 3 year old special needs son, and their healthy and happy baby girl who has not yet reached a year and will not have the opportunity to know her father's heart except through the kind words and memories that are shared with her.
During this time, no family should have to worry about money, there is enough grief and worry they must get through at this time. And as Charles was their only source of income, and not knowing what if any money will be received on behalf of his death from the company, there are many funds needed to pay immediate bills, of course plan his memorial, as well as many other unthought of expenses.
Thank-you so much for all of the prayers that have been lifted up to this family. They are very appreciated. Please give Rosalie and her family the time and space they need to grieve.
This fundraising account has been created with permission from Rosalie Jones and is being operated by her brother and sister in law, Jacob and Tonya Vaughan. Any funds raised will be used directly to help benefit and support Rosalie and her children during this time. We appreciate any donation, no matter the amount, and appreciate you opening your hearts to this family.
