    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.

    Harold Jones was a husband,daddy, brother,friend,boss. Harold and I worked together for 15 or more years, we had good times and we had bad times but we loved each other in our own way. Janet, Brittany, Ethan, Darrell and the rest of the family he loved you. he called me his little son when we was out on the truck. My heart goes out to you guys but know you are not alone in your loss. Harold will be greatly missed and there will always be a empty spot in my heart. Love you guys and I’m only a phone call away.

    Man, you had me until your last sentence. Instead of wanting “justice” (which is just another way of saying “revenge”), do something kind for someone else in Mr. Jones’s name.

    When you go to http://www.flickr.com, enter ChevelSS67 in the search engine. It will say no matches found. However, above the search field, will be a selection for photos, groups, and people. Select People, then click on ChevelSS67. It will direct you to the pics. I will add more to flickr as I will be taking pictures with the customers that Harold had on this trailer. Again, we are having a great response from cars passing on the road, giving a Honk 4 Harold, as well as many thumbs up and plenty of waves and condolences. Harolds legacy rolls on. 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.

    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.

    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.

    As a seventeen (17) year member of the Beltmann hauling team, I have accumulated well over a million miles of safe driving without a accident or moving violation. During that tenure, it has always been my fear that if I were involved in an accident, I would cause harm to some one else. This ideology is predicated on the disparity of mass between a heavy truck and a automobile. It has never entered my mind however, that my life, or the life of one of my crewmembers could be taken in this senseless manner.

    Harold and I shared the same coordinator. She was clearly devastated by this news. I have also been a party to inter-Beltmann correspondence that reflects those same sentiments. Harold was one of the “good guys” and will be missed by many within the hauling arm of the Beltmann Group. It is my sincere hope that Janet can find some comfort in the fact Harold was clearly a blessing to his customers during a very stressful time in their lives, and as a result, that principle will mitigate some of the pain she is now experiencing resulting from his early demise.
