    Peggy, Gary and I were so saddened to hear of Jay’s passing. Please know that you will be surrounded by prayers during this very difficult time. Love, Paige and Gary

    To All of Jay’s Family: As a staff member with Jay’s brother, Bob, for over 25 years, I had many opportunities to speak with Jay on the phone and enjoyed many visits from him at our office, too — always entertaining! It was a pleasure to hear of his latest exploits, notably his hunts for the elusive morel mushroom! Everyone here is thinking of you and wishing you peace and comfort at this difficult time.

  3. Amie Mclaughlin says:

    Jay was a good man and made me feel like part of the family, even before I was married to your brother. I am so sorry for your loss, he will be missed.

Leave your condolences.
