“Quite sad to say that my sweetie pie Jones passed peacefully at the age of 99 years, 4 months & 15 days. We had a hell of a wildly fantastic 37 years together. He started singing karaoke at 90 and seeing Broadway shows at SHN was his passion and many thanks for honoring ‘Member #7′” – Kathleen Chan
