I was incredibly blessed to have the best Dad a girl could ask for. I have wonderful childhood memories because of him. He was fair, he listened, encouraged and most importantly, he believed in me.
My Dad was one of a kind and I am who I am today because of him. I love you to the moon, Dad. I'll miss you everyday. See you on the other side.

Meeting and spending time with Jay, a man of great honor, made me realize how important it is to appreciate and treasure every moment. Jay was filled with wisdom the likes of which we can only hope to acquire some day. And he shared his wisdom so very kindly and generously, and for that I am grateful. My deepest condolences to the entire family.
