Jones 1992 - 2003
The youngest in a family of 4, Holly Jones made her grand entrance
on September 14, 1992. To greet her were her loving parents George
and Maria and her older siblings, Shauna, Natasha and James.
31 1996- Halloween
This was a special Halloween for Holly. She didn't go as a witch,
an angel or any other popular costume. She went as a rock
star! (see the photo album) She wore the costume with pride
and joy. From that day on I always knew what she wanted to be
and what profession would fit her best. From that day on Holly
always walked around the house singing and dancing. Holly and
her best friend had big plans for each( other. They always spoke
of how they couldn't wait till they grew older so they could live
together and become famous superstars! Together they used to make
up and write songs and poems that were sad, funny, happy and for
ones so young, really, really unusual.
Holly was one of those children that didn't want to try anything
new and only loved her moms home cooking. When it came to eating
food, if it wasn't made by my mom or by McDonalds it was really
hard for people to get her to try it, never mind eat it. She went
through one period of her life that she loved, and almost only
ate, white bread and butter. She liked vegetables and loved junk
food. Everyone could see that Holly was following in her mothers
footsteps. She would always try to cut back on her junk food consumption
to help her mother when she was on a diet, and always work out
with her to give her motivation. Holly's lunch for school was
always ham and cheese, or cream cheese and bread.
Music was very important to Holly and her family encouraged her
talent by enrolling her in singing lessons at the local community
centre her mom worked at. Destiny's child was one of Holly's favorite
groups but she also enjoyed popular pop music by Britney Spears,
Avril Lavigne, Mariah Carrey and Bow Wow. The song that stands
out the most for us is "My Heart Will Go On" by, Celine
Dion. This is the one song Holly admired so much that she always
trying to perfect her own voice to match Celine's vocal range.
As most little girls do, she loved to listen to the radio station,
she was always attempting to call in to Kiss 92, a local radio
station, be on the air and say something goofy.
Holly was always well rounded. She had good grades, a great personality
and was involved in sports. Before her death she was doing cross
country and I remember her coming home tired and hungry. She always
loved basketball over all other sports. Holly was trying to follow
in her sister's footsteps when it came to sports, always asking
her to teach her (Holly) how to play better. Holly was always
watching and playing with her for hours at work, the park, or
in the yard.
