Mrs Jones has emphysema and has twice had brushes with cancer. The pair have been married since Jones was sixteen.

She's the most important thing in my life. An unbelievable woman. Linda is the love of my life and she still is, even though she doesn't look like she did.

I don't look like I did either, but I try my best.
