You will be dearly missed Jay, I always looked forward to coming to the Elks Lodge and it's because when I would walk through that door, you would just smile and light up my whole day. No matter how myself or anyone felt, you were always there to cheer us up. Thank you for being a great friend and I look forward to seeing you in the after. Rest in Peace brotha.
