My heart was heavy with grief when I heard the news of your dad's passing. I was shocked. I hope it comforts you to know that your dad will certainly be missed by all who knew him. He was a very specail person and always had a smile on his face. I was blessed to call him "cousin"
May God bless and keep you and yours in His loving arms during this trying time.

Just like Mere-Mere always said, "we do not have inlaws, we are family". Uncle Jay always made me feel like family. I am amazed that Uncle Jay's body was not any bigger than it was because his heart was so big (it had to consume his entire body).
I will cherish fond memories of Uncle Jay!
