Got to meet and speak with Jay only a few times but in those times he was always pleasant and welcoming to me. He was my best friends husband. May he forever Rest In Peace now. He loved his grand babies and I know he will be missed so much. Prayers for the family in this most difficult time. I pray God gives Sue the strength she needs right now to get through her tragic loss. May he stay forever in his loved ones hearts. Go with God, Pat Lukeman
