Funeral Prayer for Paul Allen Jones

Heavenly Father, we are gathered here to remember Paul and to share with one another, not his passing, but his living. You gave him a wondrous mind, which on occasion he chose not to use, but you gave him a genius for all things mechanical and a passion for all things human. We watched him grow up here- work hard for his father, and hardly work for his teachers. Frequently he would apply the Jones genius to work and school and make things look easy. He fell in love, married, raised children, took care of his friends and family the best he could. I don’t remember a single time when I needed help that he didn’t come.

We’ve been left here behind1 but with no need to say goodbye
For you’ve left his heart with us, so there’s no need to cry.
The love from deep within him shall reach us from the stars
We’ll feel it from the heavens and it will heal all scars.

Father, thank you for sharing Paul with us; a good-hearted boy, a strong, young man, a gifted mechanic, carpenter, actor, philosopher, and friend. Amen.

Written and spoken by Tom Patterson
