The Saddest Thing I Have Read In Years, And The Best Reminder Of The Best America Has: “Words From A Grieving Widow”

Email Email Print

This column has moved me more than anything in many years.  RIP Landon Jones, and prayers for the comfort of his wife Theresa and their children Hunter and Anthony, and Landon’s and Theresa’s parents, and their extended families.

It isn’t very long.  Please read it.

The Bangor Daily News provided this note to the column:

If you’d like to help the Jones family, contributions can be made in person at any Navy Federal Branch, through Paypal, or by mailing a check directly to Navy Federal. The address is 555 Saturn Blvd., Suite C, San Diego, CA 92154. Make checks payable to “Landon Jones Memorial Fund.” The Paypal account is, and the access code is7406575. You can find more information, including ways to help the other family who lost a loved one, at, too.


A second Navy veteran was lost in the tragedy, Chief Warrant Officer Jonathan Shelby Gibson, also a loving husband and father of two young children.  A Facebook page to support them is here.

A Memorial Fund for LCDR Landon Jones and CWO3 Jonathan Gibson has been established @NavyFederal for all who would like to contribute.
