From his Marine brother, Josiah:
Just wanted to thank my friend Sidney Jones for trying to be the best person and role model he could be in this short life he lived. You were a great friend of mine even before we went to Recruit Training and a better one after, you had some big dreams that you never got to pursue. This is your day buddy, a day of remembrance. I still miss our late night conversation and talks of the future, you’ll always be on my heart no matter where I go.
Semper Fi, I know I’ll see you again someday.
Interment with full Military Honors at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, IL.
