A special thanks to everyone who posted their kind remarks to The Jones Family. Please know that this is far from over, Mr. Jones was a hardworking man and on that sorrowful day he was trying to make a living for his family. If the shoe was on the other foot and it was your loved one, I ask anyone who is reading this, “what you would do”? This was not a stray cat or a dog struck down, but a human life. Please keep us in your prayers as we move forth.

Hello everyone, and hello to the Jones family. My name is Brian Miller and I am a Beltmann driver. I am also the driver that will be delivering Harolds shipments for him. I personally never got the chance to meet Harold or his family, but I felt it necessary to honor his life and legacy in some way. Myself and my helper(Mike Aguilar), have made a banner that will honor him in this way. It is currently hanging on the back of the trailer, with the saying, “Honk 4 Harold”. Below it says Driving in Memorium 1948-2011, as well as a description of our reason for hanging the banner. Several close friends and managers from Dehavens North American in Wilmington, NC have also signed it with their own sayings as well. Its just my way of trying to honor a man that has been in this business as long as he has. So far, our first day out with the truck, we recieved well over 50 Honks 4 Harold, as im sure they read our banner, and were feeling the emotion of this tragic situation. God Bless the Jones family, and my thoughts and prayers are with you all. After the trip is complete, I will be donating the banner to the Jones family.

By the way, as far as the banner goes, you can see a picture of it on the trailer, along with myself and my helper. Just go to http://www.flickr.com and search ChevelSS67. You will find the pic there. Take care, and God Bless.

This was a great man that the neighborhood people will truly missed.He was known from coast to coast. My family will lay him to rest today 11-2-11. Aunt Janet and Family I love you guys. It all seem so strange that he is gone. He was my dads best friend. When I saw my dad I could see the hurt in his eyes. In every ones eyes. We will have justice.
