Jay's family,
Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. I learned just after the first of the year.

Bill, I am so sorry for the loss of Carole, as well. I could not have asked for better in-laws. Having lost my spouse in January of 2010, I am grieved to hear of both of your losses. While, it has been many years, I have not forgotten the kindness of you, Carole, Doug, Charlie, Michael, Randy and your daughters-in-law.

Marie, I grieve at the loss to you and your two young children, too much, too soon. May your memories be a blessing.

Most Sincerely,

Matthew & Donna Walker

I remember Jay as a kind and gentle presence. He treated everyone with respect and willingly took on solving other people's problems.

To get to know someone as unique as Jay is truly a rare occurrence. I'm grateful that I had that opportunity. He will be missed is so many ways from his keen sense of humor, to his great technical skills, to his uber coffee affection... holes that cannot be filled. Rest in peace my friend.

Dear Marie,
Please know that you and Jay are in the thoughts of many people today, even if we couldn't attend in person. Jay's stories will be often repeated in the years to come and he will always be remembered with a smile and a wink.

Jay will be missed by many and not soon forgotten by all those who's lives he touched. I still have the sounds of a certain phone number being dialed burned into my ears...

Good luck to Jay on whatever lies ahead, and brightest blessings on his family he has left behind.

Dear Marie; It's so terribly sad to see someone pass so early in life. I know that you and the children were his joy, and I will always be here for you.
