“We can always buy new houses, we can buy everything new, but we can’t buy family,” he said. Jones revealed he bought his mother the home in the beginning stages of his career.

Despite the holiday nightmare, Jones was thankful his family escaped safely. “I wasn’t raised wit my mother but my son was and his whole life of memories gone in a flash,” he wrote.
