As you may be aware, Tyrone Jones Sr. (Papa, Dad, Husband, Brother, Uncle, Friend), was hospitalized early last week, due to an inability to eliminate carbon dioxide from his lungs. After 2 days in the hospital and advice from his medical team, Tyrone made the decision to return home with hospice care. His desire was to transition in peace, surrounded by family.
Since returning home, he's been able to enjoy time with family, listen to some great music, and enjoy a few bites of food... and if you know Tyrone, you know ice cream was involved. His hospice care team has been nothing short of amazing, providing excellent care during each visit.
We would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of support. We greatly appreciate all of the love, meals, encouraging conversations, and prayers. Due to the sensitive nature of Tyrone's condition, visitation is not encouraged at this time.
