I have so many good memories I could share but the best thing I can say is Jay ALWAYS greeted with a big smile and I never heard him say a bad word about anyone! He was al about making sure everyone was happy. He loved Margie and his family! One of my fondest memories of him is when I ran into him at KMart. He was squatted down spraying cans of hair spray trying to find the can that sprayed the best. He said Margie would send him back if he did get one that sprayed good. He was a precious person. Our family loved him so much! He called me Sissie because of our family connection.

There are way to many memories to list them all, but here are some of my favorites.
He always played with Evan, even got on the floor with him until he was 90.
He loved picking on his sisters, anytime they would be talking about the soap opera he’d pull his hankerchief out of his back pocket, wave it as if to surrender & then wipe the pretend tears from his eyes 😂
He ALWAYS had a smile on his face, I seriously cannot remember him without a smile.
He could always make me laugh, I will miss him more than he would’ve ever imagined.
Give everyone up there a kiss Uncle Jay, I love you 😘

There are so many memories when someone is so much a part of your life. I had a long conversation with my brother, Merrill, today; and we both teared up talking about our great times with the Heberts. They were our second family, and our parents were best friends. I was nearly an adult when I found out we were not actually related. Weiner roasts in their backyard, badminton, homemade ice cream, trips to the beach, Margie’s spaghetti and pecan pie, just a few of the memories. Nobody could make us laugh like Jay. I know they are having a big reunion in Heaven. God Bless the family and give them peace. Love y’all, Janelle and Merrill
