I remember Jay as a young man working at Greenwich Hospital, and of his friendship and growing love for my classmate Betty. We were young women in Nursing School , back in the early 1970’s. Betty and Jay were a special couple. My deepest condolences to Betty and her two daughter’s at this sad time. Sincerely, Laura Scholz Guyette
