Tributes

11/29/2017 - Jay was a good and honest man. He helped me get out of the Colorado River back on March 3, 1989 when I rolled my vehicle into the drink from black ice. He always had a kind word to say and a wonderful smile. I'll miss seeing him. Memorial (wake)on Dec. 3, 2017 at 93 W. Bailey (just up the hill from Jay's) at Faylene and Mark's place at 2:00 p.m.in Castle Valley. Bring something to share. Janie Tuft - Janie Tuft

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
