I loved Jay with everything in me. He was just like my own father, I adored the time we spent together. His life was lived full of love. I spent many of hours simply listening to stories of his fascinating life. He was funny, wise and true. He was not a man of chaos. Neat as a pin and sharp as a tack. He adored his sweet Connie and constantly thought only of her. When he was diagnosed his thoughts were not of himself but taking care of every need or possible concern she might encounter. He oozed love for her. Sometimes when we'd be talking and she'd walk by he'd just look at her and say "man I love that women." I will long to spend time with him and hear him speak. He was true in word and deed. If it's possible, Heaven is a bit brighter with Jay there!
