We had the pleasure of meeting Jay at Valerie and Chet's wedding last year.  He was a very entertaining person.  We didn't get to spend much time with him but the time we did was a great time and he will not be forgotten.  This was sad news for us to hear and our thoughts are with all of the family members.

Donna and family ~ please accept my sincerest condolences during this very difficult time.  Jay was a great guy and I'm very glad that I had an opportunity to work with him and get to know him.  As a fellow biker, we shared many conversations of horse power, the open road, stupid people in cars on cell phones and bugs!  Okay, I talked more about the bugs than he did!  My thoughts and prayers are with you all ~ take comfort in the support of your family and friends and in your memories, they are yours to keep forever.  Take care and hold your heads high - be proud of him, he truly was one of the good guys.  With deepest sympathy,

I will be out tomorrow to say my farewell to a good friend of mine. I was lucky enough to do some road time with Jay, he is something else. Always with smiling face and his hand out to welcome you. I can still remember stopping over and we three talking for hours on end. He will be surely missed by myself and my family and the visits when you two came back to Md. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

Donna & Family,
Please except my deepest sympathy in your loss of Jay.
He was so much fun and I really enjoyed the times we had when our families were joined.
I'll never forget Beaufort and our good times there. I still don't know how to pronounce it..
I am here for you if you need anything at all.
Love you,

Dear Debbie,

We were saddened to hear of the passing of your brother.  I know the past few months have been particularly difficult for your family.  Just be comforted with the knowledge that your brother is now in a better place.  Yesterday Velma and I participated in a 5K walk (in Dayton) for a fundraiser for cancer research. You and your family will be in our prayers tonight.
Take care,
Dan and Velma
