Country music fans the world over, are now saying a deeply heart-felt goodbye to the one and only…..George Jones.  And while they may not realize it…they’re exercising a deeply-felt emotion in futility…for “George Jones” will never die…and as time takes the human race ever closer to eternity,”  George (the Possum) Jones” will  live beyond forever in the souls of all who have been touched by his music!!!    Sincerely,   Ira Allen
