To The Deacon Jones Family:

Like many others today, I grieve with you and remember a man who gave so much of himself. Just six years ago, Deacon agreed to appear at a benefit "roast" I developed in Chicago. He came along with fellow Rams teammate Merlin Olsen, Dick Butkus and Lem Barney. I'd never met Deacon before but he entertained us with stories the night before at a private dinner. At the event itself, he stepped up to take over as auctioneer when a professional wasn't getting it done. And he was a smashing success.

While I remember his outstanding effort as a Hall of Famer with the Rams, I'll best remember his unselfishness off the field.

A rarity in the world of professional athletes and people in general, I will miss him greatly.

My sincere condolences to the Jones family.
