Meta Jones' grave

Meta Jones’ grave

I recently took a trip to American Falls for work.  After I completed the appointment, I stopped at the American Falls Cemetery to pay my respects.

Meta was born 2 July 1952 in American Falls, Power, Idaho and died 25 October 1998 near Kasota, Jerome, Idaho.

17 years ago today my mother, Sandy Jonas, took the life of Meta Marie Ringe Rupp Jones.  That day obviously changed Meta’s life, but it also changed the life of everyone else even distantly linked.  I dare not say how different life would be if Mom had not taken those actions.  I frankly have no idea how life would be.  I can only imagine.  Some would likely be very welcome, others likely not.

I am not the Judge in the eternal scheme.  I do not know the outcome.  All I know is that events come in life that rock us to the core.  This was one such occasion for many people.  The ripples likely flow throughout eternity, positive and negative.

The Beginning

Well, here is a beginning of the life of Paul Ross online.  I grew up in Paul, Idaho.  My home is in an area known as Kasota, which is part of the larger area of Emerson, which is encompassed by Paul.  Actually, Kasota sits on the county line, so technically I fall under Hazelton.  Paul phone number, Hazelton mailing address, Minidoka School District, but Jerome for voting and jury.  Just a mess.  I hope people will find that I will post some interesting bits every once and a while.  I will do this for the benefit of others, not for myself.  For those who wish to follow my life as I go through the adventures of life.  Please feel free to e-mail me with questions or anything else.
