My daughter, his niece, cut her nose open and Jay had just driven up after buying a white t-shirt at the mall. He jumped out of the truck and put that new shirt on her nose to stop the bleeding. After all was said and done it was just a scratch. But Jay didn't get mad. He was a wonderful man and will be missed by everyone including me.
