Uncle Jay.. my most favorite memories are spending summers with you and Aunt Jackie! I loved driving the green dragon down the beach, going down the water slide and sitting on the porch looking for Sputnik’s! You always could put a smile on everyone’s face! I will miss you terribly...
love,
Monie

Uncle Jay, what a special man you were. You brought so much joy and fun to my life and my girls life. You taught me how to drive a car, how to eat raw oysters ( with Aunt Jackie scolding us ) , to drink scotch and most of all to “cut a rug “ at the Ships Wheel ! You brought so much joy and laughter into my life. There will never be another Uncle Jay.
