I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Jaysen. I did not know him well but he and his family and friends have been on my mind very often since I learned of his illness. Know that you have been in my prayers and those of others I know. Jaysen was a friend and fishing buddy of my son Charles and I know they had fun times together. If I’m not mistaken Jaysen usually got more and bigger fish than Charles did (although Charles might have different memories I’m sure). Know that others grieve with you and want to lift you up in this time of great sorrow. May God Almighty hold and keep you.
