George Jones Leaves Letter For Great Grandchildren Born After His Death
George Jones may be gone, but he is not forgotten, as his legacy lives on. His two great grandchildren were born in Nashville earlier this month, but before Jones died, he wrote a letter to leave for the twins.
Jones’ granddaughter Jennifer Shultz, who gave birth to the twins August 9th, told Fox 17 in Nashville ‘A lot of people know George Jones the entertainer, but not many people know the family man, that my family knows.’
Jones, who Shutlz believes knew he wouldn’t make it to August to see his great grandchildren, left the sealed letter along with a signed guitar for the twins. ‘It’s kind of like having a voice from heaven.’ Jones wrote other letters for his grandchildren and his wife before he died.
‘He’ll be looking down and he’ll see them when they’re here‘ Shultz says.
A movie based on the life of the late George Jones is in the works. Jones and his wife Nancy have been working on the film the past few years. There is no title yet but it will cover ‘The Possum’s’ troubled life and success career. But who will play the country legend?
