Tributes: 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.

|They Live On
Those we love remain with us
For love itself
Cherished memories never fade
Because one loved
Those we love can never be
More than a thought
For as long as there’s a memory,
on within our heart.
