George Jones’ Last Words will Give You the Chills

by

Undeniably, George Jones is a music legend that is a trailblazer in the country music genre, and his passing sent shock waves throughout the musical spectrum.

When the “He Stopped Loving Her Today” singer passed away back in 2013, thousands of fans and fellow musicians paid tribute to him and attended his funeral in Nashville.

Even Vince Gill broke down during his tribute performance for ‘The Possum’ but nothing beats the pain that Nancy Sepulvado, his wife of nearly 30 years, must have felt when she lost Jones. She had not left Jones’ side since they tied the knot in 1983.

George Jones’ Final Words

Mrs. Jones opened up about her late husband’s final moments, and about their ‘roller coaster’ relationship, which she believed was greatly affected by God. It was she who helped ‘The Possum’ with his highly publicized battle with alcoholism. She was the epitome of a devoted wife.

His final moments with her made a huge impact on her. In an interview with The Tennessean, she recalls her final moments with her husband.

Jones lay on a hospital bed a few days before his death, suffering from complications from a respiratory infection, unable to speak. Just before his passing, as his wife was talking to the doctors, the country legend suddenly spoke.

“We were standing at the foot of the bed, and George just hadn’t said nothing, and all of a sudden, he opened his eyes, and I was fixin’ to go toward him, and the doctor kind of held me back, and George said, ‘Well, hello there.’ He said, ‘I’ve been looking for you. He said, ‘My name’s George Jones.'”

And with that, he was gone.

Nancy Jones continued to explain that maybe it was in that moment, he was talking to God.

“He closed his eyes, and that was the end of it. So, in my heart, I know he was talking to God.”

  1. Mrs Nancy, you won’t remember me but a few years ago like 2004 or 05 I wrote to you and George. I was surprised bc you emailed me back. It was on Valentines day. You were so sweet and kind. I let you know I was a retired Marine. Then you sent me a picture off George with a large CD set. Lord, I never dreamed I would get that but to this day I honor it and you and George. God bless you mam and be blessed in the name of the Lord.
