Where to begin... Mrs Jay was a loyal patron who loved her bingo! When she walked in the room and we met eyes I would always smile! She brought laughter as well love! No matter what type of day she had, she shared her love with mine! Always bringing me in pictures of her granddaughter to show me how big or how beautiful she has grown to be! She was trully a proud loving gramma.. :) She had the most purest loving heart.. when she would wait to eat she would get so mad at me for making her eat..she would tell me "chrystie go back to work" I said I will once I know your ok.. I will forever cherish the memories and the love she filled my heart with! 15yrs I spent with her.. every Friday, Saturday, sunday, and monday! Now I know she is dancing in heaven with her best friend Mrs Lou!! Forever remembered and always in my heart! I love you Mrs Jay.. Rest in paradise beautiful!!

Jay brought in Leah to Andrea's work and we got to meet her and the baby and we all knew that she loved her so much. I will miss hearing Bingo stories from Andrea about her and Jay and the whole Bingo crew. My heart goes out to your family! She will be missed.
