I am so moved by the outpouring of support for this weekend's celebration of National Black History Month. Thank you all so much. My beloved husband, Co- Founder of the CSO' s African American Network, Terry Jones, will not in attendance as he passed away this Monday, ending his heroic 17 year battle with kidney and heart failure. Pray for us. You're, Sheila Jones.
