  1. We are just now hearing this and are just so shocked and saddened. There are too many memories flooding my head and heart right now so I will just say this – Jay was very special and I hate the fact that we lost touch so many years ago. A reminder for all of us to cherish the time with those that make an impact on our lives.

    1. Thank you for your kind words.
      I check in every so often. I agree, my Jay was special in so many ways,
      He was not perfect, but perfect for me. We had decided to live our lives and not wring our hands in constant worry. He fought like a warrior.
      We laughed many times every day. He had a great laugh.
      He was the best person I’ve ever known. Married this amazing guy 43 years ago. Went to high school together.
      The thing that was so obvious to me, was his humility.
      Thank you, Kuhoo
