Jones said she was surprised and wasn't expecting a party of this kind.

“I didn’t see nothing until she got me up here,” Jones said. “She just kept on saying this and that and the other. We got somewhere to go or something around 3 pm, and I said I’m trying to get a nap.” Jones said she is very grateful for her family and neighbors.
