Dear Tracy, Matt and Ben: We are sending our deepest sympathy to you folks on the loss of your Dear Husband and Dear Dad. Words can not express the huge loss of losing Jay. You guys were our neighbors and friends for 16 years and we have so many fond memories of all of you. Especially, Jay, at this time. He was truly a great neighbor, friend and no one can ever replace him. We are remembering his kindness, thoughtfulness, and his special smile. We have so many great memories of standing at the fence between our houses, telling stories, watching the dogs play and grilling for supper. His humor, well there was none like it!!!!! We miss all of you and want you guys to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. What a wonderful person and family man he was, none like him! Miss you guys. Roger and Shirley
