Since early May, Don Jones has known something was happening at his funeral home on June 16.
It wasn’t until he arrived Friday morning, however, that he realized it was a dedication ceremony honouring himself, his father Irwin and his grandfather W.J. (William John) as founders of W.J. Jones and Son Funeral Home. The two arrangement rooms were named the Donald Jones Arrangement Room and the Irwin Jones Arrangement Room and the chapel was named the W.J. Jones Chapel.
